DeKalb CSB offers two living options for adults with developmental disabilities—Community Residential Alternative and Community Living Services.
Community Living Alternative (CRA)
For Community Living Alternative services, we offer shared living homes in neighborhoods across DeKalb County. These homes consist of three to four people residing together with similar interests, life goals and/or similar level of support needs. Staff is trained to provide person-centered services to help people achieve their hopes and dreams.
Services are 24/7 and consist of coaching and supporting people with activities of daily living such as personal hygiene, meal support, medical care and transportation as well as community involvement.
Community Living Services (CLS)
For individuals who reside either in their family home or who live independently in their own home or apartment, we provide Community Living Services. Hours and types of support provided are based on the needs and desires of the individuals and/or their family members. Areas of support might include, but are not limited to, assistance with meals, shopping, personal hygiene and community involvement.
