Welcome to the Neighborhood

At Disability Supports, rethinking care for individuals with disabilities includes living options. Finding affordable housing to properly accommodate clients is always a challenge. Disability Supports has developed and built four housing complexes, uniquely designed to meet the needs of those we serve. 

By providing innovative care to all, Disability Supports allows individuals with mild to severe disabilities — who may otherwise have been consigned to institutional care — the choice to live in their own homes while enjoying all of the benefits of community inclusion.

“Instead of sharing a big house or room with dozens of others with various abilities, our clients love going home when they want, being alone, being together with friends, or doing their own thing. We always say our residents are spoiled, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!”
— Cindy Ritter, Disability Supports Office Manager, Asset Management

Common Approach

Welcome to housing on a human scale. Most clients share a home with one roommate and come and go as they please. Each community is within a campus environment in which residents live near friends, gather in park settings and watch out for each other. This form of independent living prevents isolation and encourages interaction. Housing services are part of our unique campus community and approach to enriching the lives of those with various abilities. 

Person-Centered Supports

Our in-home residential support services are designed around the needs of each individual for whom we care. Disability Supports helps with a wide array of living skills, access to community events, and offers many ways to participate in the community.

Attendant Care Services – Hands-on assistance is provided for the functional needs of clients who have a physical disability and may need assistance with daily living activities. Attendant Care services also include the performance of delegated nursing functions.  These include:

• Bathing
•  Toileting
•  Mobility

•  Eating, nutritional planning and preparing meals, including prescribed special diets
