Thrive Group

We serve over 600 clients with a staff of 285. Our wait list is over 800 people. Our roots stem from the Hamilton Cerebral Palsy Parent Council, but we have grown substantially over the past three decades to help individuals not only with cerebral palsy but with any disability, which may include muscular dystrophy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, developmental delay, brain injury, spina bifida, visual impairment, etc. Opening in Binbrook in 1978 with a congregate setting home for 35 adults with physical disablities, we expanded to include seven housing projects, some of which have short-term rental units. AbleLiving also provides outreach services in clients’ homes, including both attendant and homemaking services. Our new ReCharge programme offers in-home respite in the Mississauga / Halton regions which enables an individual's regular caregiver an opportunity to take a much needed break from their duties.
