Community Support Services has been supporting adults with developmental disabilities and/or mental health concerns for more than two decades. Our staff work with 24 adults in supportive living homes and an additional 14 adult clients receive outreach services. The level of support each client receives varies, based on the needs of the individual. Generally, the support inclues assistance and training in basic living skills and community inclusion, emotional support and some level of supervision. Staff also assist client in decision making and problem solving. Social behaviour skills are taught through a combination of role modeling and behaviour intervention strategies. Additionally support staff act as advocates and liaisons with the medical community, income support and other service providers

Clients are accepted by referral from Yellowknife Health and Social Services
