LSSVI provides housing and support services for adults with disabilities capable of living independently. Through our federally-funded rental assistance program, our staff provides apartment management and maintenance services. To help maintain their independence, private funding supports supplemental assistance, including social work, nursing managed care, limited transportation and recreational activities.
