In an effort to reduce the stress of entering a group living environment and to maximize normalization, we strive for a home-like environment that approximates most resident's normal living environments. While our program provides varying degrees of structure necessary to help people learn to better order and organize the tasks associated with day-to-day life; we also strive to keep each of our programs non-institutional in character and flexible enough to be able to respond to the individual needs of each person.
