ONGWANADA - SUPPORT, RESPECT, CHOICES

Ongwanada has been a member of the community for 70 years. Our name, an Ojibwa term for "our home", is a fitting symbol for our vision, mission, and values.

We support people with developmental disabilities, including those with complex needs, and their families, respecting their rights, increasing their opportunities to make choices and decisions about the quality of their lives and responding to their changing needs.

A non-profit, accredited organization, Ongwanada offers a wide range of individualized services and community supports to hundreds of people with developmental disabilities and their families in Kingston and Eastern Ontario.

Our funding comes primarily from the provincial Ministry of Community and Social Services and we are governed by a volunteer Board of Governors.

In December 2016, Ongwanada was granted Accreditation with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada, an independent organization which assesses the quality of service of health and developmental services organizations based on national standards of excellence.
