Community Living

Passages offers a variety of living arrangements for people with intellectual disabilities and other challenges so they can achieve the dream of living as independently as possible, be included within the community, and reach their maximum potential.

We support people in their own homes, well-appointed group homes, and other housing. In some cases, our skilled, compassionate staff is available around the clock to provide assistance and guidance.

Living in a comfortable, safe home setting – and participating in community activities – is critical to the development and growth of all people.

People participating in our community living programs receive:

  • Guidance on money management and shopping, personal hygiene, nutrition, community interaction and socialization skills.
  • Employment options and vocational training.
  • Opportunities for a variety of leisure and recreational activities.

Admission Requirements

To be considered for funded living in the community, an individual must be at least eighteen years old, and meet the following criteria:

  • Have been diagnosed with a physical, mental and/or emotional disability.
  • Meet eligibility requirements for funding sources such as Medicaid. Private pay is an option.
  • Be capable of participating in services on a regular basis as recommended by the Individual Support team.
