Zoom Saturday Seminar
Living options for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities
Community Options Integrated Services (COIS) will discuss living options for those with intellectual or developmental disabilities. COIS provides the most comprehensive information for those interested in learning more about creative residential support options. This presentation will provide a clear and concise overview of the varied living arrangements available.
Community Options is a family home agency that recruits and trains families wishing to share their homes with individuals needing extra support. They offer more of a person-centered program than a typical group home placement.
