Support services for people with disabilities

""

Support services meet people with disabilities in their place of life and take place where they are most convenient. People are supported in implementing the program so that it supports them in living independently, engaging in daily tasks, and advancing their participation in society.

Schedule a phone call and we'll work out how a service works for you together.

You will receive a call

When we call you, you'll need to answer a few questions. Then we'll find a counselor who's right for you, and arrange a time for you to meet and talk. If you'd like to bring someone with you for the interview, it's a good idea to mention that in your call.

You meet the counselor.

You will meet with a counselor, and together you will explore what services may be right for you, and what the next steps are. Sometimes you have to meet more than once.
