Residential and Independent Living
Our Residential and Independent Living Services are designed to help adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities access a broad spectrum of supports so that they can lead independent lives. Our participants have different needs; thus, the resources and supports that we provide are tailored specifically for each person and last as long as necessary. When an adult seeks help from CSS, we work with them to determine a mutually agreeable level of service, using the following three categories as an entry point:
- People living with their families who need to build targeted skills to live independently in their community.
- People living in their own homes that require intermittent support.
- People living in CSS-owned group homes in need of 24-hour assistance.
Once the level of service is ascertained, we create customized service plans which outline goals and objectives that include learning, maintaining, or increasing personal and/or household management skills. Then, we provide services in the home or in the broader community, focused on such activities as housekeeping, cooking, budgeting, socialization, or vocational skills.
Our Investments in this Important Program
Recognizing the importance that a safe and dignified environment provides for our participants, CSS routinely raises funds and invests in this program. Here are examples of capital improvements that have been made to our eight group homes. Funds raised have come from CSS families, community members, and private funders. We are proud to continually invest in our programs and most importantly in the participants we serve.
