Services

posAbilities offers a menu of services that grow and change in response to the needs and wishes of our persons served and the families who care for them. We specialize in assisting people with developmental disabilities with life’s transitions – to and through adulthood.
 

Arts & Innovation

At the same time that we try to make our professional services better—more responsive and person-centred—we are also trying to catalyze the power of natural community to care for each other and to celebrate diversity. How do we create more conditions for reciprocity and engagement? How do we embed people with developmental disabilities who are socially isolated into their neighbourhoods and communities? How do we foster hospitable spaces and natural friendships?
 

Careers

Can you help us advance our vision of good and full lives for everyone? We are currently searching for individuals who are seeking meaningful roles in social care and community development.
