Social Work

person helping another person

In consultation with the person and family, social workers coordinate admissions and discharge, discuss placement and programming options, and contribute as part of an interdisciplinary team to individual planning.

Social workers also provide assessments and counselling to people supported by Ongwanada and their families, as well as make referrals to the most appropriate service or agency.

Social Work Eligibility: Available on a referral basis to children and adults who have a developmental disability, and to their families when the person with a disability is supported by another Ongwanada program.
