Supported Community Living Services (SCL)
These services are tailored for individuals with developmental or intellectual disability and Brain Injury and other related disabilities.
Support services can range from few hours a week to daily support.
These services allow individuals to live with their families or friends or a home of their own choosing in relation to each individual needs.
One of our main focus in serving members is their community connections (in addition to helping them build a circle of support) so that the members are able to fully experience all that their community has to offer. To this end we employ counselors with the knowledge of the community to spur these connections.
We also assist members in finding New Housing or Living Arrangements if that is their identified goal or a current need in our three locations of: Johnson, Linn and Polk County.
As one of the challenges for the members receiving services is finding affordable housing opportunities, New Insights has teamed up with local landlords and property managers and developed a network of connections that allow members to find housing in the neighborhood of their own choosing from a variety of homes.
SCL specific individual goals & experiences
One of the best thing with Our SCL program is that nearly anything you are interested in as a member can be made into a new goal or a new experience, as long as it is essential to your wellness and happiness. We can create a plan that is member specific and focused on your individual goals and experiences. As a member, you can work with your Case Manager and Care Team to build a service plan that’s right for you. Your ideas and suggestions and those of your guardians and your loved ones are all important and can be incorporated into your service plan.
