Aacres Supported Living program is a community-based service that empowers people with developmental disabilities to create and live their own lives in the community.
In Aacres Supported Living program, the people we support have power, choices, and the supports they need to pursue an active, productive, and enriched life.
Supported living is a community based program in which people with developmental disabilities receive daily living supports in their own homes. As leaders in this field, we provide a wide range of services and supports to people with developmental disabilities.
Various Aacres Supported Living Services include:
Intensive Supported Living Arrangements (ISLA): This program is a 24-hour a day/7 day a week service for people that need full time staff support.
Transitional Supported Living Arrangements (TSLA): Most individuals in this program are provided support seven days a week but often have some limited time throughout the week without staff support.
Intermittent Supported Living Services (SLS): This is a non-24 hour based program that is designed for individuals that either live at home or in a living situation that provides them additional support. Hours of service are based on individual needs and preferences.
We maintain safety and health as our first priority. We assist people in maintaining regular medical, dental, optical, and mental health appointments as needed.
For those we support who have behavioral needs, we provide Behavioral Specialist services either with Aacres staff or through community partnerships.
Financial services are available to help those we support manage their money to ensure that basic needs are met, as well as helping them to save money to explore new interests, purchase desired items, or travel.. We assist people in connecting with their community as they wish.
We encourage those we support to try new activities, meet new people, and be as involved in their community as much as possible.
Transportation to all services is provided using company vehicles, local transit systems, medical courtesy shuttles where available, and in some situations staff’s personal vehicles.
