DASCH is a non-profit organization established in 1974 dedicated to exploring and meeting the residential, day program, respite and foster care needs of youth and adults.

DASCH supports people living in over 50 homes throughout Winnipeg. People can participate in personalized social, educational, vocational and recreational services that provide learning opportunities and greater independence.

Since the movement from institutionalization to community living evolved, various advocacy groups like DASCH have made large strides in empowering an otherwise historically overlooked population of our society.

DASCH is truly committed to enhancing and uplifting the lives of the people it supports through education, awareness, understanding and the highest degree of respect for all.

Our Commitment

In cooperation with governing agencies, DASCH strives to incorporate innovative and progressive approaches to service delivery while preserving its ongoing commitment to quality care.


To build and inspire a community of inclusion where people with intellectual disabilities are valued and enabled to live to their full potential.


To provide meaningful residential, vocational and leisure programs within the community to persons with intellectual disabilities by fulfilling their individual, physical, emotional, social and educational needs.

Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We strongly believe that embracing each of our different and unique experiences, based on our cultural and racial backgrounds, citizenship, creed, sex, gender identity and gender expression, sexual orientation, age, marital and family status, ability and disability, brings value and vibrancy to our workplace and our community.

We also recognize that Winnipeg is a culturally diverse city and we need to reflect that diversity throughout our organization. We are committed to this goal. Every resident and staff member at DASCH needs to feel safe, respected, and supported.
