Journeys offers community services to individuals with a unique approach. Our approach is to incorporate best practices in service provision. To achieve this, Journeys offers a variety of services integral to creating a fulfilling and individual lifestyle.
Supported Living Arrangement (SLA) is a residential service that provides living supports to individuals with intellectual disabilities living in their own home. Services are based on individual needs and often include training in home care, budgeting, medical and behavior supports, communication and socialization. Services are provided on an intermittent basis and are flexible based on the individual’s wants and needs.
Intensive Supported Living Arrangements (ISLAs) provide services in community residences for up to four individuals who share a home. These services were developed as an alternative to facility care, so that individuals could live in the community while receiving intensive supports and training. Many of the individuals in this program have intense medical and/or behavioral training needs, therefore twenty-four hour supervision is provided.
In Shared Living Arrangements (commonly referred to as Host Homes) individuals with intellectual disabilities live in private family homes. By combining shared resources and household responsibilities this program allows persons with intellectual disabilities to feel as if they are a part of a real family. All Shared Living arrangements have a primary staff member who has been trained by Journeys to provide the essential supports and training that the individual needs. Shared Living Arrangements are provided on a twenty-four hour basis.
