Community Living Services

Community Living Services provide adults with developmental disabilities with individualized training and the support necessary for the individual to live in their own home. Community Living Services is guided by the philosophy that people with developmental disabilities have the right, the desire, and the ability to make choices about their present and future lifestyle, and they are active in the decision-making that directly affects his or her life. Fulfillment of this philosophy demands that the training and support services provided are person-centered and uphold the individual’s right to self-determination.
