About Share community program

Share Community Program was started in September 2015 for people of all ages in the Ottawa area. It is a program which offers people with developmental disabilities programs in many areas, at their skill level and ability. It is adaptable to individuals with a variety of exceptionalities and needs. We offer individuals the chance to reach and excel beyond one's goals, to justify one's existence and be a part of the whole, and to be recognized as a valued entity of our communities. 

We help to support families and individuals who require programs and services for individuals with intellectual exceptionalities. Unlike institutional care, we believe community-based programs are the answer to giving individual a chance to become a respected and valued community participant and have an improved quality of life where they can reach and excel beyond their goals. We shape our program to fit the individual. 

We are committed to developing and celebrating the strengths and respect the uniqueness that each individual brings with them and to providing staff, individuals, and the community an opportunity to learn, grow, and participate in all we have to offer. 

Our mission is to create a positive and judgement free environment for those with intellectual disabilities. To provide support and help develop new and existing skills so individuals can reach their maximum potential. We aspire to create a positive change in the lives of individuals with intellectual exceptionalities and to promote social inclusion in the community.

Our Vision

We are committed to developing and celebrating the strengths and respect the uniqueness that each individual brings with them. We are committed to providing staff, individuals, and the community an opportunity to learn, grow, and participate in all we have to offer.

Service Principles 

We help to develop and celebrate the strength of an individual by promoting a simple plan of options. Each individual is encouraged to chose between two options, whenever possible, whether it be outings, food, friends, conflict resolutions, etc. We encourage the feeling of control and an ability to grow. We respect their uniqueness through understanding of their exceptionalities in working within their limitations, as part of a team with both family and professionals, while encouraging their growth. The variety of programming we offer is geared to the program fitting the individual not the individual fitting the program. An initial interview/in take process ensures we are meeting their needs to the best of our ability.
