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.
