The Lou Greenberg-Miriam Association is a charitable organization whose mandate it to purchase and maintain community homes that are adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of adult residents living with autism spectrum disorders and intellectual disabilities. These homes enable residents to live fulfilling lives in a caring and supportive environment. The association also manages the Lori Black Community Centre that serves as the head office for Miriam Home and Services and as a hub for its day and evening client programs.
The Association manages 19 community homes purchased with funds raised through the Miriam Foundation. These homes are located in the communities served by Miriam Home and Services and are adapted to meet the individual needs of the residents. Every residence houses clients and is staffed by Home Managers and other support workers who provide quality care, guidance and support.
The community residences offer stable, nurturing and family-like environments in which residents are given the opportunity to integrate into the community, further develop their autonomy and experience emotional growth, friendship and self-expression. In the homes, residents participate in all aspects of family life and make choices that affect their day-to-day lives. Every home is designed and managed to evolve according to the changing needs of its residents for the duration of their lives.
