What we believe in…
CCS’s missions and goals are to serve individuals diagnosed with intellectual disabilities by helping them in their activities of daily living and to meet their day to day and developmental needs in the framework of family size homes undistinguished from any other homes in the communities where they are implanted.
CCS’s goal is to challenge assumptions and expand the boundaries of what is possible through the following values:
- Involving individuals and families in the design, operation, and monitoring of services
- Maintaining family-sized homes in the individual’s own community
- Tirelessly advocating for person-centered services
- Fostering the development of functional life skills
- Fostering the development of relationships with other communities
What we provide…
CCS delivers quality community living support and living environments for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
CCS provides community based residential supports in rented or owned homes indistinguishable from other homes in the community.
The supports provided are based on individual need and choice, aimed at increasing self-sufficiency, and may include assistance or training in personal hygiene, communication, home living skills, money management, socialization, and physical assistance.
Joy, Safety, Respect, Community
