Extend-A-Family (EAF) was established in 1981 with a goal of providing individuals who have a disability with opportunities to develop friendships and integrate into their communities.

Extend-A-Family Kingston is committed to providing a range of supports and services to individuals with a disability and their families. As a not-for-profit organization, Extend-A-Family Kingston is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We provide a choice of services and supports for children with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as a range of services and supports for adults with a developmental disability.

The programs for children include family support, respite, inclusive seasonal camps, recreational programs and community participation supports.  While the Adult Day Program focuses on enhancing social, educational, healthy lifestyles and providing recreational opportunities for all program participants.

Anyone can make a referral to Extend-A-Family with the consent of the youth, family member or guardian.

Extend-A-Family will provide information to anyone about services and supports for children, youth, adults and their families available in their community.

 

“In life, we too often don’t take time to thank the people who make our world a better place. Well the staff at Extend-A-Family have certainly made a positive difference in not only G’s life, but in the lives of everyone who attend. The entire group are treated with such dignity, care and respect. G has certainly thrived in this environment. He has made friends, been encouraged to interact with others in a positive manner, and been challenged to try new things and learn new skills.”


“He is dreading the end of camp, I don’t think he has ever enjoyed camp as much as he has this year. I just love leaving him there in the morning and hear him laughing hysterically as I walk out the door!
You guys are the best!”


“I can’t say it enough how amazing the staff are at EAF. J has done other camps and has fun, but two years later EAF is the one camp I still always feel he 100% gets the support he needs and the staff just get him!
“Highly recommend this camp if your kiddo has special needs
“Thanks for allowing my son to create some amazing summer memories!”
