Residential supports are key to individuals with disabilities obtaining and maintaining the highest level of independence possible. Through our Community Living program, KETCH provides training, support services, and assistive technology to allow individuals with disabilities to do just that. Options for Community Living settings include apartments, homes, duplexes, or the family’s home. Based on each individual’s specific needs, staff support is arranged to provide training and supervision. Training, support services, and technology are focused on assisting persons to learn new skills, to enhance their involvement and participation in the community, and to become as self-sufficient as possible.
