Community Living Arrangements
Community Living helps persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities find comfortable homes and compatible housemates in a neighborhood setting. Each group home provides 24-hour supervision and assistance by Residential Direct Support Professionals who are trained in each individual’s behavioral and medical needs. The Resident Advisors assist with meal preparation, self-care, and other skill development. The Community Living Arrangement service includes transportation to day programs or work, or for leisure, healthcare, shopping, and social activities.
In the Life Sharing service, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are matched with qualified, supportive families who open their homes to them. Support may include transportation, self-care assistance and community integration. Families are compensated for their service and are required to receive annual training in topics such as first aid, CPR, fire safety, family dynamics, and infection control. They also are expected to be versed in Milestone policies and procedures related to Life Sharing.
