Supported Community Living
With our supported community living programs, children and adults learn things like how to balance a checkbook, brush their teeth or set a shower schedule, make new friends, be safe in their community, communicate with others and more.
Our goal is for people to achieve their own goals of independence, whether it’s learning to cook or to someday live on their own. The goals are driven by each individual, and everyone works together to reach those goals.
Hourly services are provided in your home or community. Each child or adult works on a goal one-on-one with an LSI staff member. We also encourage people to get involved in the community, to have fun with their hobbies or attend a community activity with the club of their choice.
These services are for adults and teens who are ready to make a transition to living on their own. We offer a structured, nurturing environment with up to 24 hours of supervision in a home or apartment. You can have 1- 2 roommates.
A flexible range of care
Our services are very flexible. Your child may start with hourly services to work on skills at home and in the community. Then, as he grows into young adulthood, he could move into his own apartment with daily supervision.
As he builds his independence, he may scale back to hourly services while continuing to live on his own. Someday he may not need the support of an agency.
