Assisted community residential services

Assisted Community Residential Services (ACRS) provides long-term residential supports for individuals with developmental disabilities and/or serious mental illness, as well as medical conditions, who require assisted living.

More about Assisted Community Residential Services:

  • Not time-limited.
  • Designed around individual needs and preferences.
  • Emphasize full inclusion in community life.
  • Living environment fosters independence consistent with an individual’s potential.
  • Some services provided directly by CSB. Others are provided through contracts with private, nonprofit residential service providers in the community.
  • Most services are provided directly to adults.
  • Some supports are provided to families for family-arranged respite services to individuals with developmental disabilities, regardless of age.

Services include:

  • An Assisted Living Facility (ALF), operated by Pathway Homes Inc. provides 24/7 care for people with serious mental illness and medical needs.
  • Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs) provide 24/7 supports for individuals with developmental disabilities who need highly intensive service, medical and/or behavioral support needs.

Other services for adults with developmental disabilities include:

  • Group homes that provide 24/7 supports (small group living arrangements, usually four to six residents per home).
  • Supervised apartments that provide community-based group living arrangements with less than 24-hour care.
  • Daily or drop-in supports based on individual needs and preferences to maintain individuals in family homes, their own homes or in shared living arrangements (apartments, town homes).
  • Short-term, in-home respite services.
  • Long-term respite services provided by a licensed 24-hour home.
  • Emergency shelter services.
  • Individualized Purchase of Service (IPOS) is provided for a small number of people who receive other specialized long-term community residential services via contracts.
