The Supported Independent Program (SIP) offers a semi-independent living facility for individuals 18 years old and older in need of minimal assistance with daily activities. This program allows individuals to establish confidence in living independently, while receiving the support that is needed to live in the community.

These homes are supervised 24/7. The homes are one component of comprehensive, individualized treatment. The homes allow individuals the opportunity for personal and therapeutic growth while working toward living independently.
