Momentum Developmental Support

Discover how Momentum has evolved to meet the complex needs of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities with our proven-successful model.

Our Mission

At Momentum, our focus is on Enhancing Futures of persons with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and their families.

Our Vision

We envision a future where persons with I/DD are active participants in their communities, regardless of their abilities. Persons with I/DD will have the necessary opportunities, and supports where required, to meet their individualized needs.

Momentum’s Core Values


We are open, honest, and respectful in our interactions with residents, families, communities, and one another. We give each other the benefit of the doubt and take pride in our work.


“Good enough” is never good enough. We continually seek to implement best practices as we strive to deliver the best quality of care for each individual. Each day we are committed to delivering our services at the highest standard of care, just as we would expect when seeking support for our own loved ones. It is the right thing to do.


We care about where we live and work, and we celebrate the accomplishments of our team and others in the community. We want to make our corner of the world a better place to be. We are prepared to invest time and money into helping our community grow.


We value big ideas, innovation, and ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking. We strive for efficiencies and always look for a better way. We are driven to succeed because of our shared desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others.


We all contribute to making our workplaces enjoyable. We find moments to celebrate our successes, both personal and professional. We know the power of laughter to bring positive energy into a room and a relationship, and we have a desire to find joy in our day to day lives.

Collaboration in Care

Momentum, a program of Brightisle, is a leading provider of health and community care services in Newfoundland and Labrador. Together, we are energized by the challenge to improve our collective health and well-being and to make care better.

I feel like I make a difference in my role. To see clients completing activities of daily living and allowing support staff to help, makes me feel like I’m making a difference.

- Belinda Edmunds, Developmental Support Worker


My favorite part of my workday is definitely the interaction with the clients and helping to create moments of joy for them, whether that be playing a game of cards, doing a craft, or something so small like going to Tim’s for a tea.

- Jocelyn Mercer, Developmental Support Worker


I love where I live because I can have my dog, Lady, and I love my staff! I like going to Momentum Center, socializing with old neighbors, going to The Works, and bowling. Staff help me with my recycling business.
