What We Believe
We believe with support and encouragement everyone can contribute to the community in a valued and meaningful way. We include and encourage individuals to be active participants in deciding how to live their life.
Participation House Support Services encourages individuals, either alone or in consultation with their family and friends, to play an active role in the decision-making process. As such, the supports Participation House Support Services provide are unique to the needs of each individual.
What We Do
Participation House Support Services – London and Area is a non-profit, community-based organization providing assistance to people with significant physical and/or developmental disabilities to reach their full potential in the community. It is committed to encouraging and creating an inclusive community where individuals with disabilities have access to all the community has to offer and are included in a valued and meaningful way.
In addition to supporting individuals in over 51 locations throughout London and Area, Participation House provides support services, recreation and leisure activities for individuals with disabilities throughout the community. Project Hope (Help with Opportunities for Participation and Enrichment) was established to offer individuals considered medically fragile and/or having high needs with day activities for social interaction and community activities while still living at home with their families. Everyone supported by Participation House Support Services – London and Area participates in determining the level and type of support they receive.
The People We Support
PHSS supports individuals with significant physical and/or developmental disabilities. Participation House recognizes the special attributes of each individual and their unique characteristics. PHSS tailors the support offered to meet each individualís needs.
Many of the people we support have very complex needs, including people who are ventilator dependent. We have highly skilled and dedicated staff who are committed to our mission and vision and the provision of a safe, caring and enriching environment for those we support.
The goal of Participation House Support Services is to be a secondary support to individuals in conjunction with their families, friends and community. Participants are encouraged to be active decision-makers in determining the role they wish to play in their community. Individuals have the freedom to change their support options as required.
