Summary Statement
In the 19th Century, The Government of Canada opened the first institution in 1876, for people with developmental disability just outside of Orillia. The facility had 2,600 residents by the year, 1968.

The number of institutions and the residents were growing continually in the early 1970s. By 1976, after the Developmental Services Act was passed, 16 institutions were operated by the Government of Ontario. More than 10,000 people with developmental disability received the necessary care.

After someone moves from an institutional setting into the community, they will face many challenges. Our non-profit foundation, the Morris’ Transitional House, will be the beginning for the Transitional House for the Disabled. …show more content…

They should have the choice to be treated in the comfort of their own home.

There are many barriers that make it hard to solve the problem and it is all because of insufficient funding for programs. In Ontario, the average hourly rate for non-medical home support, which includes companionship and personal assistance, is $20 to $30. The clients that require nursing visits or therapy cost about $50 - $60.

Another problem is when some individuals with or without disability do not qualify for Social Security or In-home care Services. When this occurs, those people would have to remain in the nursing home because there is no one who can help care for them.
We believe what we are proposing is going to make a difference because:

1. There’s a need for programs for people with disabilities who do not need to be in an institution and these programs had not been established.
2. It will expand on In-home Care Services.
3. This program will help eliminate the client’s state of oppression.
4. It will help them to be independent and have control of their lives.
Goals and Objectives

Our goal is to enable and help clients to move out of an institution and provides them with education and training. The agency will have one house to start that holds a maximum of six clients. We’ll offer classes that will help clients with personal skills and provide hands on activities for them.
