Services & Supports

Family Support

At Community Living Belleville and Area we are committed to providing seamless services for people with intellectual disabilities from childhood and on through adulthood. We believe that providing support is paramount in ensuring that people have typical and fulfilling lives in their communities.

We offer a wide range of services, such as:

Out-of-Home Respite

This service offers families respite for their child who has a developmental disability and is under the age of 18 years. Community Living Belleville and Area provides around-the-clock care to children in a safe environment where the focus is on providing quality supports based upon the needs of the child. Staff meet with children and their families and discuss needs, goals and priorities to make sure that the respite time for children is fun and exciting and that it provides a much-needed break for parents.  Families can access this service through the Hastings and Prince Edward Out-of-Home Respite Committee.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Respite Funding

This service provides families who have a child or youth with ASD, who is under the age of 18 years, funding to access respite services for their child.
