Community Living York South is committed to collaborations and partnerships that will promote our Vision. Through this commitment, a new program called The HUB was created to offer individuals and families with services in an inclusive living option in Richmond Hill.
The HUB model was developed through the generous funding and support of the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) through the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Ministry of Community and Social Services. The partnership between the two ministries represents a unique and unified response to creating community living options with young adults who have a developmental disability and complex health/medical needs.
- The partners in this collaboration include:
- Central LHIN
- March of Dimes Canada
- Central community Care Access Centre
- Ministry of Health and Long Term Care
- Ministry of Community and Social Services
- Community Living York South
- York Region Housing
The HUB opened on Yonge Street in March, 2016.
Community Living York South will continue to develop partnerships in order to respond to needs in the community and to empower people who have an intellectual disability.
