Welcome to the North Hastings Community Integration Association in Bancroft, Ontario.
We believe that all people have a right to live and participate equally and safely in their community.
We also believe that everyone is unique and that supports provided should reflect each individual’s choices and dreams.
We offer daily living supports, life planning, community access, dual diagnosis supports, respite services, assistance with funding, and resource referral information.
NHCIA works closely with many community services, groups, schools, and businesses to offer individualized supports to children, youth and adults with an intellectual disability and their families.
With a planning facilitator, individuals, their friends and family come together to develop a plan. This plan is a blueprint to achieving goals, and directing
service provision. Facilitators also help with emergency plans and final wishes.
NHCIA is excited to introduce Partners for Planning Resource Network which is an innovative online resource that assists families in creating a good life and secure future for their loved one. This resource will make the process of planning easier by offering immediate access to critical information and advice from professionals and experts.
