Community Living Programs

OUR COMMITMENT:
Envision empowers residents in our Community Living Programs to reach their potential for independent living in their communities. Services and supports focus on community living skill acquisition and community participation, with a core belief that all persons are functioning and contributing members of their communities. Programs are provided to adults with an Intellectual/Developmental Disability (I/DD) in a variety of settings ranging from 24-hour to intermittent supports. Each resident has an individual, person-centered plan to outline the type and frequency of services and supports they desire and require.


“The staff gave me a lot of assistance to help me keep my own home in my community. I thank Envision for all they have done to support me over the years.”


– Mary (Julie) Bostic, Intermittent CILA Participant
