Community Living Services Annual Report

Hello Friends and Family,

Our goal in the Residential Services department is to not only promote independence and to assist individuals in achieving their goals, and to be a companion as well.

We currently operate three residential group homes which are licensed by the Indiana State Department of Health and funded through Medicaid. We currently serve 19 consumers in our group homes. The Direct Care staff provide supports with adult living skills, community integration, and health and safety to the individuals we serve.

This year, one consumer from the group homes received a referral for the waiver program. Sadly, we lost two consumers this past year from chronic illnesses. Ken Nelson provided grief counseling to the consumers and staff during both losses.

The residents participated in the Polar Plunge, Special Olympics, walked in the Princeton Christmas parade, helped with the Tootsie Roll fund raiser and they participate annually in the Knight’s of Columbus fishing tournament for individuals with disabilities.

Residents work hard every year to achieve their goals. They look forward to the annual banquet and to receive awards and acknowledgements for their successes.
