Family Home Providers

Who are Family Home Providers?

Family Home Providers are volunteers who have chosen to open their homes and their lives to an individual with an intellectual disability.  Providers are reimbursed for the expenses related to having another individual share their home.

Screening, Matching and Ensuring Ongoing Success

All potential Family Home Providers undergo a screening process. Once potential Providers are screened, further involvement becomes dependent upon finding an appropriate match.

The matching process involves exchanging information and introductions. Visits of increasing duration and frequency occur to allow ample time and opportunity to determine if the situation is right for everyone.

Each Family Home arrangement is unique. Each arrangement receives flexible resources and on-going support.

For inquiries about becoming a full-time or part-time provider please contact Kelly Agazzi, Family Home Coordinator by email or call 613.546.6613 ext. 2254.

Respite Providers

Respite Providers are volunteers who visit individuals or invite them to into their homes. In doing this, you offer families or caregivers a break from their regular responsibilities, a chance to re-energize and an opportunity to purse their own interests. At the same time, connecting with someone who is learning through the new experiences you provide.
