IDD Supported Living is a community-based service that provides support skills training and direction to assist participants to remain integral members of their community. The supports address the current needs of the individual and allow for improvement in many of the areas necessary to live successfully in the community. The supports are provided in the participant’s home to increase the probability for generalization for learning. In easier terms, the best place to learn how to do banking is in a bank. These skills cannot be taught as effectively at the kitchen table. In the natural setting, the participant must learn these skills or find the resources to help themselves.
Our program gives the participant the opportunity to experience all the successes and failures of living truly independent while supporting them and assisting them to make sound decisions involving all aspects of their life. Our IDD Supported Living program believes that all participants have the right to govern their own destiny and experience all the successes and failures in striving to achieve the goal of real independence.

These active services need to be Individual and family driven and administered in a flexible manner to meet the exact needs of both the Individual and family.
