Community Living Department
Who We Are:
The Community Living Department provides support and training for people with disabilities in their community in a manner which values their choices, encourages independence and promotes inclusion.
The Community Living Department provides a wide array of services including: Residential Habilitation in Individualized Supported living environments and in Group Home settings, Day Services at our Activity Centers, Community Support Coordination (Community Integration and Independent Living Skills Development), and Affordable Housing.
We currently operate six group homes which are located throughout the city of Sedalia. Group homes provide individuals with developmental disabilities and their housemates with 24-hour per day support services in a family-type atmosphere. Individuals participate and learn new skills in all areas of daily living in an environment which promotes good health, personal growth and community inclusion
Individualized Supported Living (ISL)
In the ISL residential program, training and support services are tailored to an individual’s identified needs. Available in Pettis and Saline counties, services and training are provided in the individual’s home and in the community, allowing functional skills to develop in real-life settings. The program’s flexibility allows for individuals with even the most severe developmental disabilities to learn new skills and become active members of the community.
We offer a variety of safe, affordable housing options for individuals with disabilities through our apartment complexes located in Pettis, Saline and Moniteau counties. These apartments, funded and subsidized by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), include income-based rent, which enables individuals to have their own apartment who otherwise could not afford one. Support services are provided as needed. Several of the apartment complexes have live-in managers to assist tenants should problems arise.

Community Support Coordination
Available in Pettis and Saline counties, the Community Support Coordination Program (CSC) offers a variety of support and training services to assist individuals with developmental or other disabilities to live independently. The individual served and his/her interdisciplinary team develop goals and determine what types of training and/or supports are needed. The CSC staff will then assist the individual to help him/her achieve their goals. CSC’s provide training and support in such areas as cooking, budgeting, grocery shopping, cleaning, and hygiene, social/interpersonal skills, as well as medication management and scheduling of appointments.
