Supported Living Program
Community Vision provides Supported Living services to people with developmental disabilities who wish to live in their own home with one-on-one support.
We support each person in the way that fits their life, providing supports that are unique to their needs, goals, and dreams. This helps the person live, work, and thrive in the community of their choice.
HOW IT WORKS
Community Vision’s Supported Living Program supports people with a wide range of requirements and goals. We first assist each person to find members of their support team that work well in their life. They then collaborate with this team to create a customized service plan that suits their needs and wishes.
Direct support staff can offer services from a few hours per week to many hours per day. They provide basic personal support services that include, but are not limited to:
- Support with meals, hygiene, and mobility
- Budgeting and bill paying
- Getting to and from daily errands
- Meeting short- and long-term goals
In addition to direct support, Supported Living includes coordination of daily schedules, financial and health oversight, building community connections, coordination of any needed medical care, and ensuring consistent communication with the person and their whole support team. The individual and their team collaborate on setting up systems for success in these areas.
Supported Living is funded through Oregon Developmental Disabilities Services, and requires a referral from a county case manager
To learn more about obtaining these services, contact your case manager/services coordinator in your county’s Developmental Disabilities Office. Inform them that you would like to pursue Supported Living services and would like to have a referral packet sent to Community Vision.
