Who We Are
We operate welcoming, supportive homes and apartments for our residents, who come to us from the community, state institutions, and other social service situations.
In addition, we offer instruction in basic life skills, such as personal hygiene, menu and dietary planning, food purchase and preparation, and money management. We also provide guidance and structure by encouraging each individual to take responsibility for daily household chores, to the extent of his/her abilities, including cooking, table setting, and laundry.
SVCR also works with our clients to help them socialize more effectively, communicate better, solve the problems of everyday life, and manage their behavior.
“I went from being homeless to having a nice place to live. For awhile, I was living on the streets. Thanks to my case manager, I am now in a nice apartment. I have slept good from the first night I was there.
I felt safe and the staff was nice and helped me out on food. They took me grocery shopping and got me a nice coat at Wal-Mart. Staff helps me every day. I couldn’t ask for better. I have a place to live and plenty to eat and people to help me to take meds and help with cooking or whatever I need help with.” — Resident

How We Help
SVCR offers three kinds of residential programs, all of which provide supervision and support to individuals with intellectual disabilities who wish to live in their community. In each program, our goal is to maximize each person’s level of independence.
