For the more than 90 special south side individuals – Sertoma Centre is the place they call home. Our Residential Program offers a variety of housing options as well as comprehensive services that empower each individual to reach his or her maximum level of independence in a homelike community setting.
Service coordinators and direct support professionals work with each individual to not only help them identify dreams and goals, but develop and implement individual service plans designed to help reach goals, overcome barriers and maximize independence.
Incorporated into various suburban neighborhood settings, each Sertoma 24-Hour Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) home is warm and welcoming. Friendships develop and individuals enjoy a wide variety of social, recreational, and leisure time activities – adapted to their interests and abilities. We offer safe and secure homes with caring staff and excellent medical care management for all consumers. Our consumers are encouraged and supported to advocate for themselves and make their dreams become a reality.
Our Residential Program also offers Intermittent CILA (ICILA) Home-Based Services, Adult Foster Care and Specialized Services. The mission of all programs is to serve the needs of all individuals in the least restrictive residential setting of their choice, while assuring their continued growth and safety. Through the provision of comprehensive services in the home, and with the added support of excellent daytime programming, Sertoma consumers do live lives of pleasure and dignity. Residential staff take great pride and pleasure in supporting individuals and their families on their journey, and celebrate each and every success.
