Supported Living Homes
CLH Developmental Support Services supports over 90 people in 20 Supported Living Homes settings including Penetanguishene, Midland, Port McNicoll, Waubaushene, and Victoria Harbour. In addition, 4 individuals are supported in the Family Home Program, and 36 people in the Supported Independent Living Program, 4 of which receive specialized supports through Dual-Diagnosis SIL services.The type of support an individual requires depends upon their specific needs. Some people live on their own with minimal support from staff, others live with families, such as in the Family Home Program, while still others reside in group homes that are staffed on a 24 hour basis. Accessing the supported living homes program is undefined as the intake is done through the DSO program.
As the people we support age, their support needs continue to become more medically complex with no increased funding. CLH continues to rely on donations to CLH Foundation to assist with the upgrades to homes and accessible transportation so that the people we support can continue to age in their homes. By providing our supported adults with the environmental changes required to enable them to continue living in their homes and their community where they have established themselves, built relationships and made memories- it affords these individuals the means to increased independence, empowerment and dignity.
