Community Living Services

Our mission is to empower and enrich the lives of the children, teenagers, and adults served. To be empowered, they must have options to choose from. And to be enriched, they must have access to the world they live in so they can try new experiences and spend time doing what they love. Our primary goals are to provide safe, healthy, nurturing, community-integrated living services that lead to each person served to achieve their life goals. We partner with them, their families, and our community to help achieve our goals. Each person served has a Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional, a Nurse, and a team of Direct Support Professionals assigned to their support team. As part of our community living services, we provide 24-hour support and supervision, ongoing enrichment and personal development activities, transportation, coordination of medical and support services, and help with applying for and managing assistance programs and benefits.

Population(s) Served
People with intellectual disabilities
People with learning disabilities
People with other disabilities
People with physical disabilities
People with psychosocial disabilities

The goal of our employment services is to help every person served who wants employment to find and keep a job that they love and find meaningful. Our services consist of two programs. The first is our community employment service. Through this, we provide a variety of Supported Employment Services (SEP) to help our clients achieve the goal of community employment. Services we can provide to facilitate community employment include:
-Training on how to complete job applications and write resumes
-Training on how to have a successful job interview
-Assistance in finding a job
-Transportation assistance

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
