Residential Support celebrates 40 years of service!
We believe that all people should live with respect and dignity as valued, contributing members within their communities in a place they call home. This vision has guided us for more than thirty years.
The below position was listed on October 1, 2012:
Residential Supports provides staff support and assistance with housing arrangements to individuals with developmental disabilities so that they can live with the rights and responsibilities afforded all citizens in the community of their choice. The variety of housing options and range of supports adjust to the age of the individual served – whether nineteen or ninety-nine – and the level of support needed – from a few hours a week to 24 hours a day.
Responding to Changing Needs
Since 1971, when we opened the first community residence in the state, we have respected and learned from the unique qualities and abilities of the people we’re privileged to serve. We understand that each individual has specific values, preferences, needs, and abilities, which change over time. Our goal is to accommodate their individual needs and interests so that they can reach their potential and live a dignified life in their community.
We provide a variety of housing options and a range of supports.
We have developed a variety of housing and support options to serve the specific needs of the individual. These options include staffed arrangements, shared living, supported living, and home sharing. Whatever the supports needed, it is most important that they are provided in the individual’s own home.
We support individual choice.
We recognize the individual’s desire to have a support network of family and friends, as well as paid staff, home health aides, personal care attendants, community counselors, and others, involved in making decisions about services. But it is always the individual, with or without the support network, who determines the support services desired from Residential Supports.
Meeting Ongoing Challenges
Since our pioneering efforts in 1971, we’ve continued to expand and enhance our services. In addition to a variety of housing and support options, we provide comprehensive case management services. We also address complex medical and clinical needs and have a curriculum for human sexuality education based on The Association For Community Living’s Human Sexuality Handbook: Guiding People Toward Positive Expressions of Sexuality, co-authored by Gail T. Brown, M.Ed., CRC, LCSW and Patricia Carney.
Our supports are flexible, responding to individuals’ changing needs, personal preferences, and interests.
We are committed to the delivery of supports that are respectful, ensure individual control, foster meaningful relationships and community membership, encourage personal growth and well-being, and result in a dignified life in the community.
