About Us

TOZ (first incorporated in 1989) is a non-profit agency located in Whitehorse that serves the Yukon and surrounding communities. We provide day programming and residential support services for adults labelled with intellectual disabilities, including Yukon Review Board clients. TOZ was first established by a group of individuals that were seeking a home and services for their family members returning home from southern institutions. The first home was created. Teegatha'Oh Zheh is a Gwitch'in phrase meaning "To return home by the path on which you left."

Since then TOZ has grown to meet the demands of the community and the agency is currently operating two Adult Day Programs (Open Doors and In Step) and two residential homes where twenty-four hour care is provided. The goal for our services is to provide support to adults with intellectual disabilities in any area of daily life where assistance is needed by encouraging opportunities for personal choices and decision-making to allow the client to be as independent as possible.
