Lake Ridge Community Support Services (LRCSS) is a partner of the Community Networks of Specialized Care.
On May 18, 2005, as part of the transformation of developmental services, the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) announced that four networks of specialized care would be established across the province.
The Community Networks of Specialized Care (CNSC) are a way of linking specialized services and professionals to pool their expertise to treat and support adults who have developmental disabilities and mental health needs and/or challenging behaviours (ie. dual diagnosis) in the communities where they live. The Networks bring together people from a variety of sectors including developmental services, health, research, education and justice in a common goal of improving the coordination, access and quality of services for these individuals who have complex needs.
