Options for Independence

Person-Centered Services

Independence and the personal goals of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities are the focus of our residential programs. We teach the skills you need to become as independent as possible and to achieve outcomes that are meaningful to you.

Using the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL) Personal Outcome Measures (POMs) tool, we focus on identifying the individual strengths, dreams, and aspirations of each individual. Those strengths and aspirations provide the roadmap for each individual’s journey to independence.

The Stars That Guide Our Services

Every individual in our program develops a life plan — their Guiding Star Workbook —  that reflects what is important to them, who is important to them, as well as their dreams and goals, and the accomplishments that make them proud. This workbook helps our staff get to know each person as an individual and guides the services we provide. The Guiding Star Workbooks ensure that we have the information we need to help the people we serve achieve their personal goals.

Community Residences for Individual Needs

Our Community Residences are homes for individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Each resident is safe and supported as they bond with others in their home and acquire the skills that will allow them the greatest level of independence. With five or six people living in each home, it’s a close family atmosphere. Residents also have opportunities to engage with the larger community as well.

Services include 24-hour support, assistance with household chores, life-skills and transportation training, clinical support and recreational activities — all guided by the individual’s strengths and the aspirations as expressed in their Guiding Star workbook.

Our residences are licensed by the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
