KPP provides self-directed support, complex care, and affordable housing for people with diverse needs to live independently in their home and achieve their goals. Specializing in activities of daily living for people with physical disabilities. Serving the counties of Haliburton, Northumberland, Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Communities that are caring, inclusive and accessible
We believe 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. We believe that people also have the right to make real 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 or illness, and as such we strive to ensure non-intrusive support for people to enjoy a participatory life.
KPP is committed to:
- a) encouraging the establishment & security of housing for persons supported by KPP. This housing will be safe, stable, affordable and accessible, where participation in a life of quality can be a reality for every resident. The establishment of homes where people can live as inclusive a life as they wish is our priority.
- b) ensuring that support workers provide sensitive, consistent and flexible support, whether through Supportive Housing or Attendant Outreach Services, to assist people to perform the activities of daily living. Efforts will be made to facilitate opportunities for worthwhile career options and for fair recognition of accomplishments to which people with disabilities can aspire and achieve.
We believe that real strength can come from shared abilities.
KPP is about people, their homes and supports. We believe that the state of belonging to which we all aspire can be reached from our acceptance that the uniqueness of each person is to be celebrated, supported and acknowledged as essential to the well-being of our communities. Mutual respect and mutual growth will ensure a sense of self worth and equality for all people.
