Our Adult Residential Program provides services for transitional aged youth (TAY). These are youth who are 18 years old, in extended care (formerly known as crown wards), have a developmental disability and who are deemed eligible by Developmental Services Ontario and the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.
A referral is made at aged 14 from our Child Protection program to our Adult Residential Services so as a relationship can be established and a plan for adult placement and necessary referrals made. Once the youth turns age 18, Adult Residential Services coordinates the best placement for the young adult. This could include a host family or a group home.
This is a service that is available at age 18 for youth who are crown wards and have a developmental disability and who are deemed eligible by DSO with the Ministry of Community and Social Services
