All applications for support are flowed through a central point of access for Elgin and Oxford – Developmental Service Ontario (DSO).

When we become aware of a person needing support, we refer the person directly to the DSO.  The DSO prioritizes each applicant based on group living or SIL support needed. All people are assessed using the SIS – Supports Intensity Scale – to determine support needs.  

When we have a vacancy occur, we report the vacancy to the DSO and work with them to determine the best match for that vacancy.
