Passport (including Special Services at Home)
Special Services at Home
The Special Services at Home (SSAH) Program is funded and administered by the Ministry of Community and Social Services. Under this program funding is directed to Community Living Owen Sound and District where it is managed on behalf of families so they can purchase services to provide personal development and relief support for a child or an adult with a developmental disability or a child with a physical disability. For more information about SSAH, please call 519-371-9251 and ask to speak with a Family Support Coordinator.
The “Passport” to Community Initiative was created for adults with a developmental disability to provide opportunities for those who have left high school to find more effective ways to participate in their communities. Young adults accessing “Passport” can receive funding to participate in activities that encourage their personal growth and help them achieve their potential.
The approval and access process to “Passport” service is managed by an agency other than Community Living Owen Sound and District. If approved for funding, families may choose to administer their monies and acquire their services in the community or to use the services of Community Living Owen Sound and District. For more information and/or to apply for “Passport” funding, contact the local Ministry of Community and Social Services office or a Family Support Co-ordinator at Community Living Owen Sound and District.
