CVNQuinte supports over 80 adults who have a developmental disability. By providing individuals and their families with supports and services which are responsive to their unique talents, aspirations, and choices. CVNQuinte strives to empower people with developmental disabilities to contribute to the enrichment of the Quinte area. Services are provided either by obtaining an existing service contract through the Ministry of Children, Community & Social Services or obtaining a contract through Passport services
Recognizing that people require support to make it possible for them to exercise their citizenship, services assist individuals to become a part of, connected to, involved in, participate with, and included in, their community.
Services facilitate, teach, counsel, inform, provide advice, act as a resource, coach, as well as provide direct support. This is provided without taking control of the individual, their life direction, or create a dependency.
We believe that opportunities should be provided so everyone’s goals and dreams can be achieved. Our employees work hard to assist people to achieve those goals. Person Centered Planning provides direction around how supports are provided by a Coordinator at CVNQuinte. With the help of family, friends and employees, people look at their past and present and work together to discover what direction they would like to go in their future.
CVNQuinte uses a tool called Personal Outcome Measures to ensure services start at the highest level of quality. A supervisor/coordinator interviews the person/family member to determine their current quality of life and services and together assist the person to develop priority goals and the services to achieve their goals.
CVNQuinte has a tailored approach to providing independent living service as over 90% of the people supported through our organization live in their own homes in the community.
CVNQuinte supports people living independently in the Quinte region using this unique delivery model:
These supports may include but are not limited to assistance with education, employment, housing arrangements, support to visit family, health & safety, nutrition, banking, shopping, personal care, medications, home maintenance, and recreational activities.
Life happens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, therefore, CVNQuinte provides residential support on a 24-hour basis to people needing an additional level of care. Our supports are tailored to the individual needs of each person in their home.
“Passport” services are a contract between the Ministry and an individual that is supported by CVNQuinte, which provides funding for services, supports and continuing education as the transition is made from childhood to adulthood. The funds provided by the Ministry are brokered by CVNQuinte to the individual receiving support.
