Narrative

Funded by Department of Developmental Services (DDS), this program provides hourly supports to adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities living on their own in the community.

The ultimate goal is to help the individual live on their own safely and be as productive in the community as their skills allow them to be.

Hourly supports to individuals living on their own, with housemates or significant others, who live in the Springfield/Westfield area. Supports vary from one to fifteen hours per week, and focus on assistance with the day to day details of living on one’s own, including skill building and education, liaison with other professionals, employment search, benefits/ financial management, accessing generic services, and general case management.
