The Grove

An afternoon community for youth living with an intellectual disability

Here at Willowbridge, we understand that the timing between programming can be difficult to coordinate for your loved one. For those still in school or other daytime supports, there is often a gap between the end of the school day/program and the end of the work day, making it tough to plan schedules. To bridge this gap we offer The Grove – an afternoon respite community designed for youth ages 15-29 and living with an intellectual disability in Brantford and Brant County.

Available for youth 15-29 and residing in Brantford and Brant County

Our late afternoon relief is offered in an inclusive, safe and fun environment and is facilitated by our professional support staff. Here, Grove Community members have the opportunity to kick back, relax, and socialize with other youth.

Hours: 3:00pm-6:00 pm with flexibility

Transportation and one-on-one support can be arranged at an additional cost.
