Spartan Grove Residence is licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to support up to nine (9) children from newborn to age 18+ with a variety of disabilities and medical conditions. This home is staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is located in Greely, Ontario Canada. The children that reside there have high medical needs or chronic disabilities that require qualified and trained staff. Children may require night-time support for suctioning, chest care, oxygen support, G-tube feeding and seizure disorders.  The home is wheelchair accessible, has a heated outdoor pool and has a Snoezelen room. Our team of dedicated and professional staff are also experienced in palliative care support. (see first photo below)

Supported Living Program (SLP)

Partners in Parenting provides several Supported Living Programs (SLP) throughout the City of Ottawa. Each program provides a unique group yet individual program based on the resident’s needs residing within the residence.

Based on the physical size and layout of the home, the typical SLP home can support anywhere from 3 to 6 residents at any given time. Residents could have physical and/or developmental disabilities who may or may not be able to direct their care.

Each SLP residence would be a family environment foscused on family involvement, communication, social activities and supporting the resident’s activities of daily living based on their abilities and specific needs.

Our family has fostered with Partners In Parenting for almost ten years. Their heart for children in care is evident. In fact, the founders of Partners In Parenting began as foster parents. The organization has never lost that desire to provide a successful fostering experience for both the child and foster family. As a Partners’ foster family, we benefit from 24 hour/7 days a week support. The on-call system ensures that you can talk with a person rather than a machine whenever help is needed. With this level of support, we are able to confidently provide the love and care of a family for children in care. ~ Mary Ruth

We applied to become foster parents with Partners in Parenting in 1998. We chose Partners in Parenting because it is a small, caring organization that is committed to providing compassionate care to foster children. The organization is unique in providing each family with a Foster Family Supervisor who provides guidance on the many new experiences and challenges in fostering. Foster parents are provided with ongoing training with respect to mental health issues, physical and sexual abuse and the many special needs that affect the children who come into care. As Partners in Parenting foster parents, we work with a wide range of professionals who are committed to foster children. Through this organization, we have developed close friendships with other foster parents whom we have met through monthly meetings and foster family activities. Fostering is a life changing experience and Partners in Parenting and its foster parents are an amazing group to work with and who understand the calling of a foster parent. ~ Bonnie & Claude
