Community Living Interlake offers community-based homes that provide 24 hour supports for individuals living with intellectual disabilities. CLI currently operates 6 residences and several Supported Independent Living apartments. Each of our residential houses provides a home for between 2 and 4 individuals. In each home residential staff provide daily support and care, encourage individuals to participate in daily living skills such as cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. Individuals are supported in becoming actively involved by taking part in recreational activities, social events, creating relationships and becoming contributing community members.
Supported Independent Apartments provide individuals who want to live on their own with a set number of hours per week in assistance. Our staff provide supports according to each individual’s unique needs and specific goals to live in their own apartment or home. Our goal is to help them maintain their independence within their communities.
