WHAT IS HARMONY IN ACTION?
Harmony In Action (HIA) is a non-profit, incorporated, registered charity providing day support opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities. It is governed by a Board of Directors from Windsor and Essex County. Supports are provided by a dedicated staff to foster friendships, facilitate personal growth and independent skills, and to participate actively in the community.
Funding for the organization comes from a variety of sources including government funding from the Ministry of Community and Social Services, user fees from participants, fundraising, and donor contributions.
Harmony In Action provides supports in a person-directed manner. Regardless of an individuals’ disability each participant is in control of their own Individual Support Plan and plays a key role in the programs and activities they participate in.
The legislation under which Harmony In Action operates is called the Services and Supports to Promote the Social Inclusion of Persons with Developmental Disabilities Act, 2008. Ontario Regulation 299/10, the Quality Assurance Measures are from this Act, and they provide some of the rules that govern how we support people.
