Progressive Residential Supports is descriptive of the continuum of supports we provide to complex children and youth and their varied support networks. It is reflective of our collaborative efforts to provide these intensive and specialized supports with the ultimate goal of stabilization and the ongoing reduction of supports as these children move along the developmental stages and ultimately onto to adulthood.
Support is individually designed to meet the unique needs of each child (and their family) who are experiencing behavioral, emotional and/or mental health challenges which interfere with their skill development, quality of life, and community inclusion. Support is provided in community based homes with specialized staff, co-parenting approaches (where support is shared between the staffed home and family), and respite and other community based supports. We recognize that some children will need to live without other children in the home and that some children will thrive and grow in a peer roommate situation.
The main objective of this program is to support clients in a manner that provides them with independent living skills, supports to realize their goals and to assists them in their transition into adulthood.
We also focus on community activities including educational classes, volunteer work, leisure and social activities.
We have a variety of residential homes throughout the city that have 3-4 individuals residing together in their communities. We have opportunities for involvement in all four quadrants of the city (NE, NW, SE, SW)
Progressive Residential Supports offers flexible work schedule as we offer day, evening, and overnight support on both weekdays and weekends.
