“We are committed to the goal of assisting people who have an intellectual disability to experience their full potential.”
FAMILY HOME PROGRAM
There are many adults in Ontario with developmental disabilities who are seeking a place to call home. Families, couples or individuals who welcome an adult with an intellectual disability into their home are rewarded with love, appreciation and a sense of giving back.
People and families who provide support come from diverse backgrounds with different life experiences. What they all have in common is a commitment to building a relationship and giving a stable home environment for a person with a developmental disability.
As a Host Provider, you will receive remuneration, respite, case management, a 24hr on-call system of support and you can look forward to an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling experience of your own.
Do you have a place in your heart and a place in your home? Becoming a host provider means so much more than just offering a room in your house. You’re giving someone a place they can call home. A place where they are supported, valued, respected and have a real sense of belonging.

GROUP HOME RESIDENCES
CLGS operates 8 group residential homes where people we support live and have a place to call home. Support services are tailored to the specific needs of each individual within an atmosphere that fosters a home-like setting. Staff work with individuals and encourage continued growth with independence, social and emotional development, community involvement, relationships, spirituality, safety and health care. Many of our residences also provide specialized care to individuals with physical challenges.
Specialized mobility equipment is installed in the homes and regular training is offered to residents and staff in areas of physical wellbeing. Community involvement plays an integral role to the wellbeing of the people we support. Our residents are out and about throughout the community on a regular basis. The connection with their community from visits with medical professionals to daily living routines such as grocery shopping affirms to them that they are valued citizens of our community.
“Through the services we provide, we succeed in providing plans that are individually tailored with focus being on mind/body/spirit.”
