Staffed Residences

We currently have 11 staffed residences; homes are located in a local neighborhood and are supported by a staff member around the clock. Generally, three adults with similar interests live together in one house and receive 24-hour support. Housemates have their own bedroom and share the rest of the living space.

 

Supported Apartments

 

Currently, we have 3 apartment buildings but also support clients in their own personal apartments. Support for these individuals is tailored to meet specific needs such as paying bills, grocery shopping, housekeeping, laundry, etc. Twenty-four-hour support is not considered necessary for these individuals.
