St. Francis Advocates operates 12 residential homes across Lambton, Kent and Essex Counties, supporting adults with Autism and/or other Developmental Disabilities.
Our services were developed to provide learning opportunities in both residential and vocational areas to assist people in reaching their potential and enhance their quality of life.
Residentially, people learn self help skills that are essential for more independent living along with enjoying leisure and community activities.
A 24 hour support plan is developed based upon what the person has identified in their Person Directed Plan (PDP). Through a continuous rotation of consistent personnel, assistance is provided in areas such as communication, life skills and social skills development, so goals can be more easily attained.
St. Francis Advocates' philosophy is to provide a "family like" environment to everyone supported. We believe that each person is unique and therefore opportunities explored are based on needs and interests.
