About

Together we can open the door to possibilities — because everyone matters!

 

Since 1997, in partnership with the Toronto community, Addus has provided fun, meaningful, and individualized day supports for young adults with developmental disabilities. We are a registered non-profit charitable organization.

 

Our dynamic support programs are custom designed directly with participants to be responsive to their individual hopes, dreams and goals. This personalized plan works as a guide to help build all daily supports, programs and curriculum developments. Together, we create and implement a results oriented plan of action. This ensures the individual’s decision making, supported by Addus, is based on concepts of “exploring options” and “informed choice.”

We empower and support participants to take charge of their own lives while giving back to their community to become valued contributing members. Addus provides a welcoming environment that fosters friendships, builds connections, and recognizes the strengths and talents of everyone. Let us know how we can support you! Contact Us

 

We provide fee for service options as well as being able to accommodate families who receive Passport Funding.

Addus About Page Vision Friends Image developmental disabilities

Vision

Belonging to a community is more than a luxury­ – it is a fundamental need. When people with developmental disabilities are connected and active in their own communities, every one of us benefits. It’s our vision that adults with developmental disabilities are included in the community and hold valued social roles.
