We have residences in Vancouver and Richmond that are designed and supported with the individuals’ needs in mind. We provide varying levels of support based on the unique needs of individuals.
DDA offers a wide variety of living arrangements to adults with developmental disabilities. Customized living arrangements meet the needs of our individuals. Our homes are chosen to fit into their neighbourhoods in Vancouver and Richmond. Staffing is provided on a 24 hour, 7 day a week model, with the level of intensity varying with needs. DDA accommodates the needs of seniors, individuals with medical needs, and those who require behavioural support using structural and environmental design elements.

Residents live alone (or as a couple) in an apartment that they own or rent themselves. Residents receive ongoing or occasional support in financial management, health and nutrition, relationship building, and developing strong links with people in their community. A team of Life Skills Workers provide outreach throughout the week.
For more information, please contact Deanne Ziebart at 604-273-9778 or email@example.com.
Individuals share a family home, suite or share an apartment with a roommate. Individuals receive ongoing or occasional support from home share providers, or roommates in financial management, health and nutrition, relationship building, and developing strong links with people in their community. Support varies depending on the needs of the individual.

Developmental Disabilities Association’s adult day programs consist of recreational, social, educational and behavioral skills training for individuals with developmental disabilities.
We have five centres in Vancouver. Individuals in our programs gain greater independence and quality of life through participation in community-based social, recreational and vocational activities.
Each client is assisted by program staff to develop a personalized program of activities that reflect his or her needs and preferences.
All day programs are currently full and funded spaces require a referral from CLBC. Depending on suitability, we can also customize a program for those with private funding.
For more information, please contact Kirsti Inglis at 604-273-9778 or email@example.com.

The Holiday Options Program provides an opportunity for adults (ages 18+) to participate in a variety of summer excursions with guidance from our supportive and caring staff.
Day trips may include taking a paddle-wheeler up the Fraser River, dining aboard a cruise boat and other recreational activities. Out-of-town trips explore popular vacation sites in British Columbia and may feature far away destinations such as Alaska. Each trip begins and ends with the same goal: to provide fun, memorable, and inclusive group experiences for individuals with developmental disabilities.
The program operates June through August.
