COMMUNITY-BASED LIVING WITH RESIDENT SUPPORT

Our mission is founded on the belief that each person with a disability and their families should have a choice to receive customized housing services that are based on individual preference.

We serve over 100 residents with dozens of locations throughout the Illinois-Metro East area. With a team of highly trained and dedicated care professionals, we offer 24/7 services and a choice of the model of home that best meets a person’s preference.

Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA)

Our CILA homes function much like any other family home with a routine, shared effort to maintain the home, family trips, holiday celebrations, companionship, support with personal goals and dreams. We have the benefit of the professional support of our dietician, RNs, case managers and direct care professionals. For some the goal is to make this their forever home; for others this is an opportunity for personal growth to be able to live as independently as possible.

ICF/DD – Intermediate Care Facility/Developmental Disability

Our ICF/DD homes function much the same as our CILA homes with a routine, shared effort to maintain the home, family trips, holiday celebrations, companionship, support with personal goals and dreams with professional support. Admission into an ICF/DD home does not require a PUNS selection and many individuals begin their journey of independence in an ICF/DD home.
