Reena is a non-profit organization which promotes dignity, individuality, independence, personal growth and community inclusion for people with developmental disabilities within a framework of Jewish culture and values. Reena is dedicated to helping children, adults and seniors with developmental disabilities realize their full potential and become fully integrated into mainstream society. Reena is proposing to build approximately 60 residential units modeled on the success of the first Reena Community Residence. The facility will be situated on lands adjacent to the Reena Headquarters in Thornhill and will be aimed at addressing the housing and complex care requirements of the individuals deemed to be a priority for service by Developmental Services Ontario, including individuals who are aging, at risk of homelessness, inappropriately placed in health care and other institutions and other disabled and highly vulnerable individual members of the community. Zoning and design work are currently underway.
