Community Homes and Programs – CHAP
We have had many changes in our department over the last year! We currently serve 32 autistic adults and 4 youth in our programs. We oversee 8 homes and one Supported Independent Living suite in the community. Our most recent home opened this fall for children and youth. We recently moved the drop-in centre for the Day Program and evening activities to a larger space. This space offers more room for group activities, individual activities and a place to take a break, eat, and relax. There is also room for some of our management team to work on-site and be more accessible to participants and staff.
We are excited for more growth in the day program and will be implementing some new ideas to enhance programming for the participants in the coming months. We continue working on our goal to support each participant’s quality of life and provide opportunities for enrichment in their homes and communities. In addition to the everyday workload, our team has put an incredible amount of work into making new projects happen, helping new participants transition to our program, putting on a Steak Night fundraiser, a picnic, a professional development day, and a Christmas potluck.
