The Dundas Living Centre is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to creating a safe, secure and sustainable home for adults with developmental disabilities within the Hamilton area.
Need For Appropriate Housing
Regardless of the needs, no parent wants to see their adult child placed in an inappropriate situation, many kilometres away from their family, friends and home community.
Rather than decisions about residential options being made as a result of crisis, families and their adult children need to be supported to plan for a respectful transition to a residence of their choice in their home community
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities recognizes that “persons with disabilities have the opportunity to choose their place of residence and where and with whom they live on an equal basis with others and are not obliged to live in a particular living arrangement.” This epitomizes the mandate of the Dundas Living Centre.
