For more than 20 years, our Residential program has helped adults with disabilities and their families make the transition to independent living. Our residential program provides varying levels of support depending on the needs of the individual.
In our Supported Living program, clients receive part-time, focused support to those who either live in their own home or apartment, of live with a parent or guardian.
The Supervised Living program provides 24 hour support for clients living in apartments or shared homes. This program emphasizes independent living by providing ongoing support and life skills training.
Respite care is temporary supervised living for individuals whose caregivers must be absent for an emergency or personal reasons.
In all of these programs we focus on supporting our clients to be as independent as possible. The Center’s staff assist clients in managing key areas of their lives. These include:
The Center helps individuals maintain a monthly budget. Clients learn how to use cash, maintain a checking account, pay bills and manage finances.
Individuals receive encouragement and assistance if necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Medical issues are addressed as needed and medical protocols are followed as ordered.
For those receiving services through the Supported Living and Supervised Living programs, the Work Activity Center offers aide securing and maintaining funding through a City or County housing authority. We also maintain several multi-unit residential sites specifically for adults with developmental and physical disabilities – each available for the Fair Market Rate set by the federal government.
Community Access and Leisure
Individuals receive support in order to pursue and participate in desired activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, weekly life skills classes, Special Olympics, sporting leagues, community events, dances, and vacations. Individuals choose the activities they desire to participate in.
This program assists and teaches independent living skills that every person needs to live in the community while maintaining proper health and safety.
