Collaborative Community Connections works with our adults to meet their daily needs.

This involves supporting individuals in the following areas:
Job Search
Recreational Outlets
Association with Community Resources (the Abilities Program and Kerry’s Place)
Educational Enhancement (Section Class for those 21 and younger, and other associated educational resources)

Collaborative Community Connections looks at each adult as an individual and strives to meet their unique needs through appropriate enhancement.

Transition Program

Our Transition Program is designed to assist with the growth of young adults who have often graduated from a structured group home. The Transitioning Adult will be deemed to need continued support and guidance, and in most cases, it is understood that they have realized a level of growth that has earned them heightened trust. Continued development of the Transitioning Adult will be a major focus and it will require their determination and flexibility as well as adherence to their program to succeed. While setbacks are expected, it is assumed that the Transitioning Adult will be open to the advice of our staff and clinical team in order to accept direction.

This program is a clear move towards independence for these Transitioning Adults’; however, routine remains important to assist the Transitioning Adult to a level where they can accept independence.

Transitioning Adults in our Transitioning Program reside in one of our 6 Supportive Living Homes throughout Durham Region.

Independent Living Program

Our Independent Living Program is designed to assist with the transition of young adults who do not require daily support.
Our team will check in with Transitioning Adults in this program and provide mentorship for their short and long-term goals.

Residents in our Independent Living Program live apart from our Transition Program.

Transitioning Adults in our Independent Living Program reside in one of our dozen plus Semi-Independent Living Homes.
