After approximately 30 years of helping and housing people with both visual impairment and developmental disabilities, the board of director's for Ottawa's non-profit agency TELCI has passed a motion to close the homes. 

Many of TELCI’s residents have lived together for decades, they’ve become family, and TELCI is their home. This is the only organization of its kind in Eastern Ontario. The residents have benefited with enhanced self-reliance and social opportunities and we owe it to them to do everything we can to preserve their homes and keep their families intact.
