The Five Principles of Supported Living Services
A Home of One’s Own
Choose your home, what happens in it, the appearance, and who you invite over.
Choice and Self Directed
You make informed choices, directing your services, your life, and your future.
You choose who to have relationships with and how your family, friends, neighbors, circle of support, and staff support you in your life.
You choose, and have the opportunity to learn about your community including; volunteer opportunities, churches, classes, support or leisure groups, coffee shops, and community resources and events.
Flexible and Tailored Services and Support
Your Individual Service Plan (ISP) that you create with support, will direct the services provided in your home and in the community. This living document will change as your needs change.
