The Developmental Services Housing Task Force is reaching out for the very best ideas on innovative housing solutions for adults with developmental disabilities.
The 19 volunteer members were appointed to review proposals and make recommendations on innovative housing solutions for funding under the province’s three-year, $810-million investment strategy for community and developmental services.
Last month, the Task Force began public outreach around the province. In November, Task Force members spoke with Ottawa families and agency representatives at a forum organized by Families Matter Co-operative and Total Communication Environment. Task Force members also met
with 100 people in Toronto at a housing forum organized by the Provincial Executive Directors Group of Community Living Ontario.
The Housing Task Force is currently working on a proposal call for innovative housing solutions for people with a developmental disabilities and their
families. You can look forward to seeing more information about this in early 2015.
