The Community Supported Living Arrangement is designed to promote independent living in the community for individuals with developmental disabilities who live in their own homes, but still need some support. The services we offer through this program can range from a few hours a week for help with things like money management, shopping or social activities to 24 hours staff support depending on the individual’s needs.
