Clients in this program have access to 24 hour shared care staffing which gives them the opportunity to live in their own apartment in a complex occupied by members of the community at large. Vancouver Coastal Health is the funder and referral agency for the program.
Self Managed Care
In this model, individuals direct their own care through CSIL or other self-managed care programs. They receive a monthly rent subsidy, making their units more affordable but are responsible for sharing the cost of an overnight staff person who’s available to them all.
VRS provides affordable rent for low income families, seniors and persons with disabilities.
This program provides 24 hour care and support for adults with complex care needs, living in Vancouver. Beyond basic care, the focus of this program is the promotion of independence.
As these individuals gain life experience and confidence in their own abilities, they will have more options and be better equipped to direct their own lives.
This program provides housing, care and support to children with disabilities and their families in Metro Vancouver. It is enhanced with the social, recreational, and educational opportunities so fundamentally important to the well being of any child.
Paramount to its success is the commitment of our dedicated staff in creating a family atmosphere in the homes to nurture the development of the kids. VRS takes special care to insure that our children are comfortable and happy which, in essence, is the number one priority of this program.
This program is funded by Ministry of Children and Family Development.
