The Supported Living division of SL Start provides in-home and community care to an amazing group of individuals with developmental disabilities. SL Start recognizes each individual's needs and goals as unique to that person. Some individuals supported need assistance with daily tasks and routines, while others live a more independent lifestyle. SL Start employees coordinate directly with the people we serve, their families and private, state and federal agencies to develop customized programs and living conditions best suited for each individual's needs and goals. Our attention to safety, health and personal choice are priorities when designing these services. SL Start employees are encouraged to use their creativity in supported living positions. Ultimately we strive for our employees and the people we support to have fun and grow together.
