Residential Services

 

In its largest program, Center for Social Change provides community-based residential supports to adults and children with developmental disabilities.  Living in apartments, townhomes, or single-family houses, the more than 100 individuals supported by CSC receive the wide array of support services needed to enable each of them to live independent lives to the fullest extent possible.  Each time they assist an individual in eating at their favorite restaurant, shopping at their neighborhood grocery, or attending a local sports event, CSC staff provide opportunities for that individual to fully share in the benefits of community membership. And, each time that staff assist an individual in participating in a neighborhood clean-up or area-wide yard sale, they are enabling that individual to contribute to the health of their communities.  Empowerment, personal growth, choice, rights, and productivity- each of these represent a hallmark of successful community integration.
