Each individual’s choice of housing location, choice of shared living arrangement and choice of lifestyle all determine the services and supports provided by our agencies.

All of our individualized services and supports allow for a more independent lifestyle within the community setting.
IO Waiver, Level One Waiver and Supported Living.
The wonderful part of Waiver funding for supports and services is that the services provided go where the individual goes. An individual may choose to live in an apartment or home with others, at home with parents or other family, or in their own home . . . it's the individual's choice! So, if an individual already has a home, our agency services may absolutely be provided there! Our agency provides services in all residential settings.
Community Options provides for more independent living accommodations through the supported living and Medicaid waiver programs to individuals throughout Southwest Ohio.
