Reena is the second largest provider of residential and support services for people with developmental disabilities in Toronto and the largest in York Region. Reena now provides services to over 1000 clients through: - Community residential programs over 250 clients in 24 residences and 50 apartment units. - The Reena Day Program hundreds of clients receive skills training, recreational programming and vocational instruction. These clients include Reenas own residential clients as well as a very large number of clients from other agencies. - A full range of family support outreach services to many more hundreds of clients to help families cope and to help individuals with developmental disabilities remain independent and living in the community. - A supportive employment program. Reena was first established in 1973 as a result of the commitment of a number of dedicated volunteers and passionate family members, as a practical alternative to institutions. This group, despite no government funding, was committed to improving the quality of life of individuals with developmental disabilities. As a result of their early efforts, Reena opened its first group home in 1975. For over 28 years, Reena has provided the sector with skilled and compassionate leadership. It has developed residential, day and leisure programs to meet the needs of our clients. Reena has pioneered programs that create and maintain an environment that respects and promotes dignity, individuality, independence and freedom of choice. Reena strives to integrate people with developmental disabilities into the mainstream of Canadian society. It has also been on the cutting edge in the provision of respite programs, providing families with the support they require as full supportive partners.
