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 so 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. Services are provided for individuals in the following situations:

  • 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 occasional (intermittent) support.
  • People living in group homes that are owned by CSS and prefer or need 24-hour assistance.

Once the level of service is determined, we create a customized service plan which outline goals and objectives that include learning, maintaining, or increasing persona land/or household management skills. Then, we provide services in the home or in the community. We focus on activities like 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.
