Take me to :
Effective March 31, 2016, Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region will no longer be hosting the CHAP Program through respiteservices.com. Unfortunately this program has not been as effective as we had hoped it would be and so this organizational decision was made.
Over the next year, EAF will be investigating other ways that we can support families who wish to connect with independent contractors. In the meantime, if you would like to connect with direct support people in our area, there are several options to consider.
1. Individuals who are eligible for Special Services at Home or Passport Funding may connect with direct support people hired by Extend-A-Family. These services can be paid for through government funding or private payment. For more information about this option, including cost, please contact Courtney Horowitz at 519 741 0190 ext. 264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Private care agencies or websites (such as Bartimeus, Premier Home Care, Care.com)
3. Advertisements in your local area (i.e. universities, childcare centres, bulletins at places of worship, parent support groups, etc). Additional resources will remain available on the CHAP Resource section of this site.
Thank you very much for your support of the program over the past 5 years.
