COMMUNITY LIVING INTERLAKE

Supporting an Inclusive Community

At Community Living Interlake we support adults who live with Intellectual Disabilities. We work with them to provide housing, day programs and employment training and we assist them in leading meaningful lives in a fully integrated community. We operate 6 houses and several apartments in Stonewall, provide a day program service, and we work with our clients to operate a social enterprise called Something Beautiful. Something Beautiful includes a gift shop, a lunch/coffee shop, and a venue for music.

Shop & Create A Better Community

We are also proud to say that when you shop at Something Beautiful you are also contributing to creating a better community.  Many of the people we support are learning new job skills and building resumes through their work in Something Beautiful, skills that will one day lead them to employment in other community stores.
