Family and Independent Supports

Community Supports

We currently provide community supports for men and women in the communities of Arlington, Medford, Dedham and Bedford. Our programs subscribe to the belief that every person must have the opportunity to live and work in the community of their choice, to promote their maximum level of independence. Program staff works in partnership with community organizations to build positive and comprehensive support networks and create opportunities for individuals to grow to their fullest potential.

Our program also works with families in surrounding communities, providing them with supports to care for their loved ones at home. Several host families provide individuals’ with a family-like environment to enhance and enrich their lives when they do not have family to assist them. Staff provides family support and opportunities for individuals to enrich their lives, develop personal skills and competencies. Supports provided are based on individual preferences, emphasizing self-determination and individual control. A full range of community activities is offered to foster the development of a strong social network of caring relationships.
