Residential Support for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Group Home Residential Services for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism

New Communities provides structured, community-based residential programs, offered in our group homes, for individuals facing the life challenges of intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, and brain injury. We specialize in helping people that may have the complexity of challenging behaviors, mental health diagnoses, or forensic backgrounds. We strive to provide quality care and services that support and encourage our residents to achieve their individualized goals.

In-home Residential Services for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism

New Communities in-home support service is designed to support adults, offered in their own home or apartment, to be active participants in their lives. Services focus on enhancing skills through supported daily living, behavior management, communication, socialization, and community-based activities. Our team works one-on-one with clients to develop plans focusing on goals and objectives, specifically tailored to each individual’s needs and desires. Our in-home support team is committed to maximizing client independence and success in the community while, at the same time, helping to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the client

We deliver therapeutic and habilitative intervention services that focus assistance on:

• Guiding, directing, and overseeing the performance of self-care and self-management of activities;

• Promoting development of independent living skills;

• Developing socially appropriate behavior and interpersonal skills including increasing self-esteem and daily coping skills;

• Activities that support personal development and well-being; and

• Community integration and inclusion.
