Supported Living ServicesCOR Enterprises provides supported living services to persons who face barriers to living independently. Our services are designed to help individuals with disabilities maximize their ability to live, work, play and travel. Our program includes working with individuals on everyday living tasks such as menu planning, meal preparation, housekeeping, money management, medical matters and health maintenance, mobility and community transportation issues, recreational and leisure activities, self-advocacy and assertiveness, personal safety, and use of community resources. Prior to developing any living arrangements, a review is conducted of all areas of personal assistance needed. Following the review, an individualized plan is developed that includes goals to be achieved in order to increase independence. Each participant then works with a Supported Living Specialist to accomplish the stated goals. Our staff will provide the necessary level of support to help participants function most effectively in the community.
