Hi All

I am looking to connect with various parent groups that are trying to figure out a way to have our children with intellectual disabilities have a home of their own. We are looking to connect all groups in Ontario and start a provincial network. Linked together we are a stronger voice. Please contact me at sralternatives.weebly.com under contact us.

I look forward to hearing from you. Bonnie Heath
