In day program the focus ranges from social, to recreational, to job skills, to work placement opportunities and MORE. Life skills takes a primary position in daily activities however, our greatest emphasis is on relationship building and creating long lasting community based connections.

Choice services

Choice programming offers a full range of classes, workshops and experiences that YOU can choose from ... come to one, or come to them all, it's your choice. Choice programming offers all the same opportunities as the day program but you don't have to sign up for the full day. You can come to classes that suit you, meet new people and learn new things! On offer are classes like dance, karate, art, swimming, tai chi, creative movement and various workshops. Many of our activities take place in the community in amazing spaces like the karate dojo,  dance studio, library, recreation centers and local green space.

At Branching Out Support Services we recognize choice is incredibly important and when we provide choice to each other, we also provide respect.

Evening and Weekend services

Evenings and weekends are time for fun with friends. Branching Out offers therapeutic groups, mentoring groups, day away trips, parties and social events. We work in collaboration with other organizations to make all these things possible! Our goal is to offer opportunities for people with differences to engage in their community with the supports they need. We all know that social isolation can impact mental and physical health and by hosting and providing learning and recreational activities we can reduce isolation, encourage connections and keep everyone safe and supported.

It's a Win, Win!
