“We looked for an adult placement for our daughter for a decade before she joined the DeafBlind Ontario Services family…we are very glad she is living in a home run by such a great, professional, and respectful organization. They have been a godsend to our daughter and to our family.”
People who are deafblind or their families who wish to apply for new or enhanced ministry-funded services must apply through the AIS.
