Residential Housing

Community Housing for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Vincent, De Paul, and Martineau Homes

Housing:

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 provide an atmosphere which respects the uniqueness of each individual;
  • 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.

Characteristics of our Residents

  • The residents are men and women ranging in age from 45 to 85 years. The majority of the residents are seniors.
  • Several of the residents have physical challenges. All of the residents have different levels of developmental disability.
  • The residents at DePaul, Martineau, and Vincent houses are provided with 24 hour staff support.
  • All of the residents are active members of their community through staff, volunteer, family and Vincentian support.
