LIFE serves over 100 individuals in Supported Independent Living (SIL) communities in Hyannis, Mashpee and Plymouth. Each community is in a safe neighborhood, with access to public transportation, job opportunities, and fun things to do. SIL participants live on their own or with a roommate and receive between 2 to 15 hours of support a week. Each community features a common area, fitness facilities, weekly social activities, and emergency on-call staff.

Candidates for a SIL community are at least 19 years of age, have a history of intellectual disability or autism, demonstrate independent living skills, such as home-alone safety, the ability to cook, clean, manage money and to self-medicate with minimal support.

The successful SIL individual will be involved in a work or volunteer job and participate in LIFE social and fitness activities. Our professional staff will help to develop independent living skills and a healthy lifestyle. We do this in partnership with families while honoring the human rights of the adults we serve.

The SIL community is not appropriate for individuals with a history of illegal behavior, alcohol/ substance abuse, self-injurious or aggressive behavior.
