Welcome to the SSAH & Passport Coalition!
We are a coalition of individuals, families, organizations, associations and agencies dedicated to ensuring that families in Ontario receive the meaningful support they require through the Special Services at Home Program and the Passport Funding Program.
Who We Are:
The SSAH /Passport Coalition (SSAHPC) was initially formed in 1990 by a dedicated group of individuals, families and agencies who joined together. We expanded our mandate to include the Passport Program in 2011. We came together for strength and support because of growing concerns regarding the need to expand policy and funding for Special Services at Home program (SSAH)and the Passport program. In the early 90’s , we believe our advocacy efforts encouraged the government to increase the SSAH funds.
SSAHPC continues to dedicate our efforts to ensure our mission is achieved.
