Community Supports Program

We all know that life has its challenges and opportunities – and for each individual they are unique. For adults with intellectual disabilities, the availability of the right tools, guidance and support, brings about the opportunity to meet these challenges to the best of their ability.

The Community Supports Program (CSP) offers a wide range of programs and services designed to meet the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families living in the community. Each individual’s strengths, needs and desires are considered and a menu of training programs are available within the day program or in collaboration with agencies and partners in the community.

  • Services are delivered according to each individual’s preferences and choices.
