ROC Society is a member of DIRECTIONS

Residential Services

In 2003, a committee of citizens, concerned that there were no residential services for persons with intellectual disabilities in the Strait Area began to meet to discuss their concerns and requirements.

In 2004, a proposal was presented to the Department of Community Services envisioning that the ROC Society would sponsor Community Inclusion Supports for families in the Strait Area, including a Community Home.

On October 5, 2007, in Port Hawkesbury, provincial funding was announced for a Community Home for persons with intellectual disabilities. The home is designed for persons who require support in their daily living, enabling them to live to their full potential and be able to stay in their community close to their families and friends.

The Port Hawkesbury Community Home:

The Community came together to make this dream a reality and Shalom welcomed home five individuals in September 2010.
