Intellectual Disabilities Programs

CR provides a wide-range of supports for adults with intellectual disabilities (ID). CR’s ID services are available throughout Northern Virginia and in the Richmond area. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to find the right match between an individual’s needs and available supports, whether provided by CR or by way of reference to another qualified provider.


Residential Supports

CR provides long-term residential supports to adults with intellectual disabilities in single-family homes and apartment settings. Residents are supported in developing an individual-driven plan of care to address personal needs and desires in areas such as self-care, socialization, financial management, communication and mobility.

Our staff provides ongoing active treatment based upon each resident’s Individual Service Plan and offers a range of activities to encourage community integration and independence. Our professional team includes a Program Manager, Program Nurse, Social Worker, Recreation Director, Clinical Director, Dietitian, Counselors and Direct Support Professionals. To receive funding for this level of service individuals must be eligible for Medicaid.
