The need for residential programs is recognized as necessary to achieve the goal of enabling people with an intellectual disability to stay in their community. After years of planning and negotiation with the Ontario Government, the Association opened its doors of its first Residence in July 1977. Since then, the Association has endeavored to meet the varied needs for residential options and has established four more Residence Programs. People are supported in such areas as laundry, cooking, shopping, accessing the community and caring for one's self however, relaxing, watching TV and participating in recreational activities are also an important part of life in a residence. After all, it is important to note that each Residence is a Home.
