Association for Community Living Interlake
People. Programs. Personal Growth.
At Community Living Interlake we support Individuals 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.
