A Balgownie facility is a "unique place with unique people" according to one placard held by carers who are determined to keep it open.
"We will not be moved" and "This is our home" were other signs held by those whose loved ones reside at Mount View - a residential facility for those with high level disability support needs.
Some, like Kathleen, have lived there for 20 years. Others, like Wayne and Jared, enjoy living alongside friends who they first met at Para Meadows School in Kindergarten. And yet others, such as Darren, have just settled into the facility after moving there when their needs changed.
All of them, their carers say, regard Mount View as their home - and the staff and management as their friends. And for their parents and siblings, it's reassuring that they're in a place where there's 24/7 support - including a registered nurse on every shift.
Yet the transition to the NDIS - a scheme which claims to bring choice back to the individual - means that Mount View's days may be numbered.
Families have received notice that the facility - which contains 16 rooms - does not fit with the scheme's plans and will not be funded into the future. And that their severely disabled children or siblings would be better off in a smaller community-based group home.
"Darren (aged 49) was at a group home for many years, and he loved it there," his father John Bilboe said. "But then his situation deteriorated, he had a brain bleed which affected his walking ability and his fine motor skills.
"Mount View was the only place that could support the complex needs he has - if not for this place he would have been left in hospital as a group home would not have been able to cater for his higher support needs.
"Under the transition to the NDIS they class anything over five residents as an institution, but this isn't an institution, it's a home for Darren and the other residents."
Jess Pinkerton's brother Jared, 34, who has cerebral palsy, has lived at the Balgownie facility for nine years. "He can't do anything voluntarily - he can't speak, eat, scratch his nose. He's so happy here - with friends he's known since Para Meadows."
Friends like Wayne, whose mother and stepfather - Peter and Colleen Robinson - are despairing of the foreshadowed closure. "People look at people like Wayne and don't think they can have connections with others, but they can connect and they do have mates. And they want to stay here."
Chief operating officer of The Disability Trust, which leases the site off the state government, said the service provider understood and empathised with families.
"We are first and foremostly focused on the care needs of the residents," Edward Birt said. "We do think it's a great facility providing first-class care, by experienced and highly qualified staff.
"And we are ready to work with families and our state government partners around any redevelopment options that need to take place."
NSW Families, Communities and Disability Services Minister Gareth Ward said he looked forward to meeting with residents and their families to hear their concerns directly.
"The NSW Government is committed to providing contemporary supported disability accommodation which in some cases includes replacing large residential centres and building new homes tailored to suit the needs of residents," he said.
"This is in line with the NDIS policy of contemporary community based group homes being the preferred service delivery."
A spokesperson for the National Disability Insurance Agency, which implements the NDIS, confirmed that approach.
"Larger accommodation models that cater to more than five participants can limit opportunities for participants to be involved and included in their community," the spokesperson said.
"The NDIA will continue to work with the Mount View residents, to ensure they have the appropriate and ongoing disability-related supports in place and when necessary; assist these participants to investigate and choose contemporary living arrangements that facilitate their involvement in the community."
The spokesperson said if any NDIS participant, or their carer, had concerns, they were encouraged to contact their plan coordinator or the NDIS on 1800 800 110.
