Supportive Living

Ongwanada operates over 20 supportive living settings located in neighbourhoods in Kingston, Napanee, and Gananoque, as well as surrounding areas. Generally, three to six people live in these homes with 24-hour staff. Varying levels of support are provided at each home. Many homes are fully accessible and have access to transportation that enables people to be more active members in their communities.

Host Family/ Life Share

Host Family/ Life Share offers families or individuals the opportunity to share their home with an adult who has a developmental disability. Placements are developed gradually and with care to ensure compatibility. The Host Family provider receives financial remuneration, regular respite, and ongoing support from Ongwanada community caseworkers.

Supported Independent Living

This program allows people with developmental disabilities live on their own with support provided through Ongwanada. The Community Case Workers assist with life skills as well as connect individuals with community resources in order to foster independence.

Respite Services

Respite is offered on weekends at a home in Kingston to provide parents and other caregivers with occasional relief. Respite is available in some Ongwanada homes throughout the week and may be available with Host Families.
