Authentic and meaningful participation in community for all. All members of community are valued, respected and treated with dignity.
Empowering people with developmental disabilities to reach their full potential.
In 1963 a small group of concerned parents and community members gathered to plan for services for their children who had a developmental disability. After a year of planning the Quad County School was opened. This grew to include a nursery school and then the Opportunity Workshop. As time passed and the school system evolved, so did the structure of Quad County. Services changed to supporting adults and expanded to include more community involvement as well as Residential Options.
Quad County Support Services provides supports in the rural areas of West Elgin, Southwest Middlesex, and the Eastern Parts of Lambton and Kent counties. The roots of the agency are strong as is the commitment to the individuals and families that it serves. There is a commitment to individuals and families to provide quality service that is driven by individual choice and individual plans. Quad County offers community participation support and residential options for supported independent living and associate family arrangements. There is also capacity for planning with individuals and families who have received funding through Passport Services. In 1999 Quad County became a community partner for employment services in Middlesex County which is known today as Community Employment Choices that is an Employment Service agency funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
