KPP is a not-for-profit, charitable organization incorporated in 1980 to support young adults with physical disabilities. Since then, our services have expanded to support people with diverse needs although we continue to specialize in supporting people with physical disabilities. We have had an incredible journey and I encourage you to read more about our history, services and housing options. KPP provides Supportive Housing services [affordable, accessible housing with supports] in people’s homes whether that be in a detached home owned by the person receiving support or in an apartment within an apartment building. The apartments may be rented at market rent, affordable rent or rent-geared- to-income and are fully accessible and located in Peterborough or the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Our Attendant Outreach Program is offered in people’s own homes throughout the Counties of Haliburton, Northumberland, Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Our services are self-directed so that you receive what you need, when you need it and where you need it! We strive to ensure we are as un-intrusive as possible and that your support is delivered with respect.
Community based housing and Property Management Services are also part of the KPP portfolio.
KPP helps people with disabilities live in the community independently. Whether the disability is a physical disability as the result of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, or as result of a serious permanent injury or an acquired brain injury, we can help. It often just takes ‘a little bit of help’ to keep people at home, living in their community and out of hospital or long term care homes.
Our motto is ‘Living at Home-your choice, our goal’.
If you want to learn more, read the information on the website, give us a call or send us an e-mail. Under ‘contact us’ you will find options to reach us to let us know your needs and how we can help.
The amazing KPP Team is here and ready to make a difference in your life. We are proud of our achievements and the stories of success we have supported people to achieve. We are ready to support you to achieve your success goals.
KPP believes each and every person is unique and has their own distinct values and personal goals. We believe that all persons have the same fundamental rights – the right to life, to support, to education, to work, to a home, to respect and to dignity. KPP believes that people also have the right to make choices in self-defined terms, to take informed risks, to enjoy real friendships and other naturally supportive relationships and to experience the security of unquestioned inclusion in communities that embrace the right of people to live as independently as possible, supported to the extent that is necessary and desirable to meet individual needs. These rights are basic to human dignity and security. We believe that disability must never be equated with sickness and illness, and as such we strive to ensure non-intrusive support for people to enjoy a participatory life.
