About RAPID Special Needs Montreal South Shore
The need for specialized care and services continues to grow but the delivery of services is declining on the South Shore of Montreal. This is particularly true for Anglophones with special needs.
Our goal is to create a safe and caring and environment for children and adults with special needs.
Our vision is to build a dedicated facility that will include:
a) a clinic that offers specialized services such as speech therapy and physiotherapy;
b) a drop-in centre where children, young adults and older adults with special needs will feel at home and can take part in supervised activities that promote recreation, socialization, community life, and vocational training;
c) a living unit that offers short-term respite to give weary parents and caregivers a well-deserved break;
d) a safe and comfortable long-term living facility for adults with special needs who can no longer live at home.
