In 1982, the original concept of the group home was born. All Soul’s Anglican Church requested from The Ministry of Community and Social Services, a description of individuals with a disability for whom housing was difficult to obtain. The Ministry informed them that those persons with a communication disorder  were typically more difficult to obtain housing for, because those individuals who were also non speaking, were considered higher risk to live independently in the community due to increased safety concerns. A congregate living concept was considered an ideal solution for this specific population as the consumers would live independently but have continual access to staff to meet their specific communication  needs. In other words, as opposed to an individual living in their own apartment and only communicating when staff was in their apartment and providing service, the person would have the ability to communicate on a continual basis as the need arose and would have the ability to communicate with other persons who had similar needs around communication to reduce the risk of social isolation. The group home was built by 1984 and the first resident moved in. The group home supports 10 consumers( 5 men and 5 women) the majority of whom are non speaking or speech impaired. The home is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
