In-Home and Community Supports is a type of assistance that helps participants maintain and improve the skills they need to live more independently and engage in the community.
We provide assistance and support to individuals so they can learn a variety of life skills. The assessed needs established through the person-centered planning processes determine the type of support provided. The support is provided in order to increase the participant’s autonomy and accomplish their desired results. Our staff works one-on-one with individuals on their own personal goals.
