Community Support

Our Adult Services provide community support with a range of options for individuals

Our goal is to help individuals live independently, have opportunities for social development, and participate in community and recreational activities and events.

Residential services help individuals gain independence

With our residential services, we can create living environments that meet the needs of independent adults. To help individuals prepare for living in their own residence, we develop skills and find suitable homes with the necessary adaptations. Services vary based on need and choice.

We also support individuals who live independently by providing them with assistance as necessary. These can include help with shopping, banking, budgeting, meal preparation, self care, and general supervision. In-home care can be provided as needed, from a couple hours a week to full time care.
