Specialized Home Care is a residential alternative for adults who are unable to live at home.  This program offers community living opportunities in professionally supervised, long-term, specialized homes, providing care and support in the least restrictive and most normalized setting possible.

Independent Living (IL) at CFCS is a scatter site apartment model to provide the youth with easy access to their support network, already in place. The IL program serves young adults ages 18-21, with more advanced life skills, but still in need of case management, as well as social and emotional support.
