Community Living North Grenville supports people to reach their full potential and enjoy all aspects of community life. We offer several services and supports throughout the communities of North Grenville and the surrounding areas.
Founded in 1967 by parents and community members who wanted an alternative living arrangement for their son, or daughter. Families remain the backbone and strength of the community living movement. We operate through the governance of a local volunteer board of directors representing families and individuals who are supported by Community Living North Grenville, and the broader community.
