Community services provides support to adults with an intellectual disability so that they can live independently. Most people rent their own apartment and can be assisted in all areas associated with independent living. Supports are provided on an individualized basis, so that we can customize the help required.

Supports tailored for you

The frequency of support is customized and can range from multiple daily contacts to weekly, biweekly or check-ins only as needed.
