Services and Supports

Our vision:

Every person we support will have a full and meaningful life, which means having a home, relationships of all kinds and a variety of socially valued roles.

Who We Are

Rygiel Supports for Community Living is one of 10 agencies in the Developmental Services sector in Hamilton. Together we attempt to provide a continuum of services to our citizens who live with a developmental disability. Each agency focuses on one or more specific components of the continuum. Rygiel Supports for Community Living's mandate directs us to support children and adults who have a developmental disability with other multiple handicapping conditions.

Current Service Recipients

Presently, Rygiel Supports for Community Living supports 186 by providing full time residential services, respite services and some day supports.

How Is Service Provided?

Our model is a community-based, integrated model. Homes of 2, 3 or 4 full time residents welcome people for respite on a regular basis. Currently, Rygiel supports children and adults who are living in 40 various locations throughout the community. Some small, congregate day supports are provided to other community members at 2 sites. Our goal is to help people live fully in their community which includes access to and use of generic amenities and services.
