“What do you dream about and how can we help you get there?”. What makes VOI unique is a focus on the individual. Our programs are tailored to help each participant share his or her unique gifts, find independence, and explore a community of encouragement and support.
There is no “one size fits all” at VOI. We are flexible and adaptable. Each supported individual who we serve has the ability to explore their interests, learn new skills, and discover hidden talents.If you can dream it, you can do it, and we are here to help make it happen.
Day & Employment Services
Services designed to meet each individual’s needs
At VOI, we envision a world where all abilities are embraced and valued. Our Day and Employment Services are designed with this in mind. We help adults with intellectual disabilities find what they truly love to do while they find their place in the workforce and the community.
Our services focus on developing life skills to help individuals navigate pre-employment, employment, and retirement, as well as finding their own unique place in the community. And we have a lot of fun doing it!
Services in Portage la Prairie, Carman and Winnipeg are tailored to what participants really want to learn and experience.
How It Works
We offer a menu of activities to choose from at the beginning of each session. A combination of community outings, on-site workshops, and skills-related classes - each day is always a little different. Our services are flexible and adaptable. We ensure that our services meet the needs and goals of each individual and their support network.
A Place in the Community
At VOI, our goal is to ensure that individuals with intellectual disabilities get the encouragement and support they need to discover their own visions of independence. Finding the right place to call home is such a huge piece of this dream.
Residential Services at VOI encourage participants to be active members in their community while ensuring they have control over their freedom, mobility, independence and social roles. We also help parents and families strengthen their relationships with program participants, while engaging with the community to ensure that supported individuals are known by name as wonderful neighbours, friends and co-workers.
Our residential environment offers safety, security, training, care, and above all, a loving home to call your own.
How It Works
With several locations in Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie, Carman and St Claude, VOI Residences are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and are each tailored to meet the specific needs of supported individuals who live in the space. Each home supports one to three individuals, and many of these individuals are also active participants in our Day and Employment Services.
Independent Living & Respite Services
A Vision of Home
At VOI, we celebrate everyone’s independence, and recognize that sometimes people still need a little help to create the home of their own that they’ve always dreamed of. Finding a place where we are safe and can be ourselves is an incredible gift, one that we believe we should all be able to achieve.
Our Supported Independent Living and Respite Services offer support to people in their own homes, either permanently or as needed. In order to feel safe and independent, we help individuals with day to day activities like shopping, banking, or getting around in the community.
Like all of our services, our participants Living Service is incredibly flexible. We are focused on ensuring all supported individuals realize their independence and find a sense of belonging within their communities.
How It Works
VOI offers Supported Independent Living Services on a case by case basis. If you are interested in exploring these opportunities with us, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
