CILA

The Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) Program provides supervised services which promote residential stability for individuals who reside in agency-owned group homes or their own home.  The H Group is a licensed CILA agency which provides services and supports that are based on individual needs.

The H Group believes that all persons with disabilities deserve to live in a warm and enriching home environment in order to attain the most independent, productive, and dignified life style possible.  It is the goal of The H Group to provide such an atmosphere in each of its residential homes and to assist all individuals served to attain the least restrictive living arrangement of their choice.

Agency-owned homes are located in areas that enable residents to participate in and be integrated into the community and neighborhood.  Agency homes are typical to their particular neighborhood and scattered throughout the community.  Each group home has eight private bedrooms, a common kitchen/dining area, living room area, and a minimum of two full baths.  Each home is compliant with the American Disabilites Act.  The homes are staffed 24 hours a day by professionally-trained Direct Service Providers.  An Individualized Plan of Services is developed for each resident to assist them in achieving maximum independence.

The agency also provides Intermittent CILA services to individuals who require some support to live independently.  Service recipients in the Intermittent CILA program have their needs assessed by a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMRP).  An Individualized Plan of Services is then developed to address these needs.  The goal of this program is to provide the necessary support to an individual so they may live or continue to live in an independent community setting.

The target population for The H Group residential program are individuals who are 18 years of age or older with a developmental disability.  Screening, referral, and eligibility determinations are made by a pre-admission screening agency.
