Community Living Supports Services
About These Services
For individuals meeting criteria to receive community living supports (CLS), in‐home and community‐based services will be provided. Services may include: supported independent living skills, social, recreational and volunteer activities. Independence is promoted by assisting with daily living activities such as budgeting, shopping, arranging transportation and household management. CLS staff help individuals connect with their community by facilitating participation in familiar activities of the individual’s choosing as well as introducing them to new activities and encouraging them to try new things. CLS staff may assist individuals with community activities such as bowling, playing bingo, riding a bike, playing mini golf and developing social skills to attend a movie, concert or play. Individuals learn appropriate behaviors in social and community settings by role modeling/mentoring, proper hygiene and dress, social etiquette, punctuality and good work ethics at volunteer sites. Adaptive equipment and supplies are utilized to assist individuals to be as independent as possible, both in their home and in the community.
