The Arc of Butler County's Residential Program offers a continuum of services to assist individuals on their journey toward independent living. Individuals may enter the continuum at any appropriate point dependent on their needs.

Community Living -24 hours a day, 7 days a week staff supervision, providing individuals the opportunity to experience community living in a structured environment. Here they will be able to learn the necessary skills to live independently such as shopping, cooking, money management, and community awareness.

Semi-Independent -40 hour a week staff support for individuals whom have already acquired the basic skills necessary for independent living, but are not yet ready to live entirely on their own. Staff assists individuals in refining their skills to the level necessary for complete independence.

Supported Housing -The Supported Housing Counselor provides up to 10 hours of support per week to individuals whom have acquired the necessary skills for independent living. Each individual lives in his/her separate apartment.

Family Living -This is a rather unique program which places individuals into the home of community providers for long-term care and training. Individuals in this program are totally integrated into the daily lives of the families with whom they reside.
