Recreational Respite Programming

One to One Respite Support

We offer one to one respite services for children, youth and adults with disabilities and who might face isolation due to barriers to participation. Services are provided in-home and are person centred to promote inclusion, encourage participation, social health and connectivity.


September 2021 Group Programs


Virtual group programs have been developed in partnership with our participants to address a variety of interests, skill practice, goals and outcomes that promote inclusion, encourage community participation and nurture social connectivity with others.
Our Build It Workshops aim to provide independent skill mastery for youth and adults who want to acquire new skills with productive outcomes. These person centred workshops will cultivate life skills and promote self-care through various topics.
