Vincent, De Paul, and Martineau Homes
We opened our first home for seniors who are developmentally challenged in July 1984;
The Society was approached to help provide permanent housing during the de-institutionalization of people with developmental and physical disabilities;
We currently have three homes in Scarborough with a total of 18 men and women.
Principles of Service
- To provide permanent homes with 24 hour care for people with developmental and physical challenges;
- To provide an environment that supports the residents with their spiritual, physical and emotional needs;

- To encourage each resident to enter into the decision making process in areas affecting their lives;
- To promote community awareness through participation as full members of the community.
