The Progress Center offers a range of housing and support services for individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or autism disorders: Group Homes, In Home Support (21/29) and Shared Living. Each residential service model is offered with a commitment to providing a home where residents can comfortably age in place. Below you will find a description of all three services along with a brief outline of some of the supports that are offered in those settings. As always, our services promote independence and freedom of choice while providing a safe and secure environment.
Interested in Becoming a Provider?
Shared Living Home Providers commit to supporting an individual with disabilities in many ways: providing a safe home environment, encouraging participation in the community and formation of healthy relationships and assisting with daily routines and activities.
Integration in the community
Shared Living is a residential service model intended to provide support to individuals in a ‘family type’ setting, promoting independence, community inclusion, supported decision making and person centered care. The approach is based on a mutual relationship where both parties agree to share their lives. The shared living approach is designed to enable people with support needs to experience a real community life; one that is not controlled by the formal service delivery system.
