LSSVI provides housing and 24-hour care for adults with developmental disabilities. Our two Group Homes operate with 24 hour staffing and AmeriCorps members, which offers residents constant assistance with their daily needs and growth towards greater independence. We provide additional health and supportive services, and assistance for “higher level” residents in learning to live independently.
Programs and services for residents include:
- Job Coaching provides job training and supported employment for residents
- Life Skills provides residents with necessary life skills training
- Self-Actualization/Habilitation provides training to residents to help residents in all areas of life to help them achieve greater independence. Residents learn through a number of socialization, recreational and educational activities that help them reach their goals in a nurturing and engaging setting.
