Imagining Home Peer Support Group

Does your family member with disability want to move out of the family home and into their own place? Whether it’s an apartment shared with friends or a place all to themselves, this can take a lot of thought and planning.

This peer group supports families striving to help their family member with disability find a place to call home.

Our Vision for Home for People with Disability

Imagine More does not endorse the congregated model of housing where strangers are expected to live together just because they have a disability.  This includes group homes or cluster housing.

We believe that people with disability should have a home

  • that reflects who they are
  • that is embedded in neighbourhood and community
  • where they can let their guard down
  • in which they feel safe
  • where they can relax and entertain
  • and live with housemates of their choosing or by themselves

This is our vision for home.

Wherever you are on your Imagining Home journey, join us to connect with other families who have a similar vision. Learn from, share with and be supported by like-minded peers.
