“Community Residences is supporting me to be the best I can be. I am now living in my own apartment. Staff helps me  manage my routine each day and helps me solve problems. I am doing all kinds  of things that I never thought I would be doing. I love it.”

Congregate Residential

CR’s residential programs provide neighborhood homes with a shared living environment. Every home is located within reasonable access to shopping, recreational, social, cultural and religious activities, health care facilities, transportation, and vocational opportunities.


Supported Living

CR offers supports in licensed or DBHDS authorized apartments. Individuals have access to support ranging from around the clock to on-call. Staff also provides individuals with training in the development of skills to provide for optimum independence. The Supported Living model promotes community integration and opportunities for full community participation in the least restrictive environment suitable to each individuals need. It exemplifies best practices for providing services to individuals with intellectual disabilities.


In-home Residential

In-home supports are available to individuals with intellectual disabilities who live with family or in their own residence. Support is provided in the form of periodic supervision and targeted services based upon individual needs. CR provides skills building training to support personal preferences as described in the Individualized Service Plan(ISP). The ISP uses person-centered planning (individual driven planning) to develop activities, supports, training, and supervision to assist individuals to maintain or improve their place in the community.
