Direct Support People

Direct Support People make up a vital part of Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region. Each of our Support People are trained, person-centred people who support their individuals in all that they want to achieve.

Offering a deep network of support professionals, Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region is one of the few local agencies in Waterloo Region that has its own Direct Support People network. This means that families get fast and easy access to the support they need, and are matched with support that fits their life.
