Supported living

SL History

Supported Living began in 1985 when parents of some of our campers loved the experience their children were having in camp and wanted to carry that over to a home setting. What started as the vision of a handful of parents and one large Victorian home, has expanded to eleven homes and 3 apartments. Homes range in style and size, from apartments to single family homes; all designed to meet the changing needs of each individual. Supported Living works closely with the Horizons referral team to ensure the “fit” is best for all concerned.

Horizons Supported Living Services are as unique and multi-faceted as the individuals we serve. Adults live in homes or apartments with a wide variety of custom-tailored supports, from cooking and shopping, to hiking and going to the movies, visiting museums and amusement parks.
