Abstract:

The site visit report describes the Residential Support Program of the Centennial Developmental Services, a community-centered board providing residential services and support to persons (currently 67) with disabilities in Weld County, Colorado. Residential settings include a group home, supported apartments, foster homes, natural family homes, or independent living. The level of support offered ranges from live-in, full-time coverage, to part-time staffing, to follow-along support a few hours per week or month. The report focuses on case studies of six people supported by the program including descriptions of the physical settings and their daily routines. Key components of the program philosophy include providing residential supports to individuals in their own homes, promoting a sense of home, promoting as much independence as possible, the belief that all people with disabilities belong in the community, and promoting an alternative to a continuum-based model of services. Program strengths include the small-scale, dispersed settings; individualized placements and supports; individualized, flexible programming in natural contexts; and staff relationships with each other and the people they support.
