Cluster Living (Supported Living)

Supported living is a residential option that provides individuals living independently in the community with assistance in daily living. This service is available to individuals who own, lease, or rent their own homes. Supported Living services include outreach support and cluster living. Outreach support provides targeted hourly support to individuals through one-on-one or group arrangements. Within cluster living, an on-site contractor provides ongoing support to a group of individuals who have homes close to one another (typically within the same apartment building).

Services are offered 24 hours a day to support individuals. To participate in TDCSS’ Adult Cluster Services, a person must be at least nineteen years old, have an identified developmental disability, demonstrate a capacity to engage independently in daily living skills to a certain degree, and be referred to TDCSS through CLBC.
