ABOUT SLS

Vibrant, person-centered, and purposeful.

 
 

SLS is a community of resources for adults with developmental disabilities 18 and older, providing a high-quality living, learning and working environment. It is designed to be a neighborhood fully and actively integrated with the everyday life of its home region.

As an innovative, vibrant, and person-centered option, SLS supports individuals to thrive through purposeful living. Serving adults from all socioeconomic backgrounds, SLS gives parents and families options, as well as peace of mind.

SLS offers residents and day program participants opportunities to shine through a creative team approach that utilizes best practices, integrates the best parts of successful national models, and fosters an entrepreneurial spirit within the neighborhood, as well as with clients.

Many adults do not want to, or cannot, live at home, but rather seek to be independent and part of a community that honors and utilizes their talents. Connection is a fundamental human need, and this drive for connection is often grossly underestimated in adults with developmental disabilities. Social deficits often mask a deep desire for interpersonal connection. SLS will challenge existing assumptions, and illustrate that true community can happen for adults with developmental disabilities.
