The Individualized In-Home Supports program provides community based services to individuals with intellectual disabilities/developmental disabilities. The program is designed to allow program participants to successfully live independently within their own apartment and/or home. Services are provided in the North Central and Greater Worcester Areas and are funded by the Department of Developmental Disabilities.

The SCL program strives to provide skill building services to assist supported individuals to learn or maintain independence within the community. SCL program participants are provided with person-centered case management which allows each program participant to receive customized services to their individual needs and goals. Moreover, SCL places a strong emphasis on encouraging self-advocacy, community integrated employment and activities. Furthermore, individuals are encouraged to make choices and are supported to live safely and successfully within their own living situation.
