Established in 1995 in Ottawa, through the influence of a group of advocates, caregivers, service providers, and representatives of the Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services, Service Coordination Support (SCS) for People with Developmental Disabilities (previously known as Service Coordination des services), has been a central point of access for people looking for services and support in their community. SCS has grown to become a respected and professional organization, expanding their area of support to the Eastern Ontario Region, with over 80 employees providing services through its core programs: Support Services (Children’s Case Management, Adult Case Management, and Residential and Community Services), respiteservices.com in Ottawa, and Developmental Services Ontario Eastern Region (DSOER).
SCS is constantly modernizing its work through strategic and innovative planning in order to adapt to the changes in the developmental services sector and keep customer experience at the forefront of all its offerings. It is within this context that they are looking to recruit their next Executive Director (ED).
