Immediate Need – Family Home Program

Family Home Program requires Host Families

The Family Home Program is one of several residential options available to people with an intellectual disability that allows their needs to be addressed in a personal and flexible manner.

We are looking for several Families that are willing welcome an adult or child into their home as part of their family. Experience in developmental services is an asset but not required.

Host Families are required to:

  • Provide a safe and secure place to live
  • Ensure a high quality of life
  • Provide support based on the person’s needs
  • Promote community inclusion
  • Be an active part of the person’s support team
  • Complete screening process including a Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening

The day I became a family home provider was the beginning of a life filled with many new adventures; warm, fuzzy moments and life-altering memories. Enriching is the single word I would choose to use to summarize my life change from the day I opened my house and heart for an incredible loving young girl. She truly is “the wind beneath my wings”.
