Housing Supports

Designed to help people live as independently as possible, in a community setting through person-centered supports and services, we offer residences that range in size and with varying levels of support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages. Our agency embraces the concept of supported routines; participating in meaningful activities and developing the necessary skills to achieve a higher level of independence and self-sufficiency. This is captured in the following manner: 

  • Assisting the person supported with the development of a daily routine that is based on his/her preferences and schedule.

  • Provide 24-hour staff support in a home-like setting, focusing on a healthy lifestyle through meals/snacks and exercise programs. Individuals can personalize their bedrooms and be a part in selecting the décor for the entire house.  

  • Creating opportunities to be involved in our community through work, volunteering, and accessing social/recreational activities.

  • Developing skill building goals that will assist the person to become more independent and self-sufficient (budgeting, cooking, activities of daily living, communication, etc.).
