Foundations is designed to help young adults with developmental disabilities make a successful transition from school to a wide range of community participation activities including employment. This is accomplished by facilitating the development of innovative, time-limited supports that strengthen community involvement skills. The Foundations Program helps young people make informed choices about their future life directions for a successful transition from school to community-based activities, including moving out on their own, and work opportunities. People are exposed to a wide range of opportunities considering their interests, goals and skills.
Foundations is an appropriate choice for young adults with developmental disabilities who are graduating from or recently left school, living at home or independently and in need of assistance in the transition from school to the next phase of their lives.
Referrals to the program are received from Developmental Service Ontario-Eastern Region for funded vacancies. Individuals and families may also purchase service using Passport or private funds depending on availability.
