Supported Living Services (SL) offer instruction and support to individuals who live in their own homes. Each supported living program is unique and offers varying levels of service and supports. The CLS program focuses on the holistic individual, employing a person-centered habilitative model which serves to support individuals to increase their personal self-determination and independent living skills based on their own unique preferences, values, and needs.

To obtain these services, an individual must be 18 years of age or older, have applied for and been approved for a Home and Community Based Services Core Waiver (see link below to apply), and have been assessed as needing SL services by the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA).

The DDAs mission is “To transform lives by providing support and fostering partnerships that empower people to live the lives they want”.
