About NVT

New Visions Toronto (NVT) is a non-profit charitable organization that provides housing, care and support for more than 50 children, adolescents and adults with complex developmental and physical disabilities. We strive to deliver the best support possible in a home-like environment. We do so with the support and involvement of family and friends.

They have the right to receive services and support while being part of their community. The location of our residences ensures that our Supported Individuals can be active members of their growing and vibrant communities.

NVT provides around the clock individualized care that supports and stimulates their efforts to establish meaningful relationships, activities, and work within their community.
