RESIDENTIAL SERVICES provides housing options based on the needs and desires of the individual. Options include group homes, supervised apartments and supportive living. The goal of the program is to help individuals live a full and productive life in the community. Staff support may range from 2 hours per day to 24 hours per day, depending on the assistance an individual may need to live in their own home.

Included in the 22 group homes are 3 homes for individuals who are medically fragile. These homes have LPN staffing on site from 8 - 16 hours per day to support ongoing medical needs.
