Community Living Mississauga provides support at 27 residential support locations across Mississauga. A maximum of four people live at each home, which are located in residential neighbourhoods.
The residential support locations are no different than any other homes on the streets and the supports are designed to maximize community involvement for each person.
There is an ongoing high level of demand for residential support services and, as a result, there is a waiting list (managed by Developmental Services Ontario) for this support. To learn more about how to apply for residential supports, please visit Developmental Services Ontario at www.dsontario.ca.
People who have an intellectual disability who want to live more independently may receive support from our Supported Independent Living (SIL) program.
Most of the people supported through the Supported Independent Living program either work or participate in day activities and then receive a few hours of residential support in the evenings.

The Family Home Program is a residential option that enables families or individuals to share their home and provide support to a person who has an intellectual disability.
We recruit caring families or individuals who are committed and interested in sharing their home to provide a safe and secure environment while fostering growth and independence for an adult who has an intellectual disability on a full-time basis. We also recruit Respite Providers to provide support on weekends or for longer periods of time as needed.
We offer support, training and remuneration – financial support.
