Since 1993 Connections For Life, formerly known as Solano Supported Living Services - a program within USARC/PACE, has been serving Solano County by creating and providing quality services that expand opportunities for personal freedom, choice and independence for adults with intellectual disabilities to develop the behaviors, attitudes, skills, physical and emotional tolerance and productivity necessary to be successful in an integrated community.
The five principles of a supported living service include:
- A home of one's own
- Choice and self-directed
- Community membership
- Flexible, tailored supports and services
"Empowering people with disabilities by providing services that promote independence, equality and integration."
Many adults who come into our program haven't enjoyed these elements in their daily living. We take pride in creating custom support systems for adults with intellectual disabilities who choose to live in an integrated community with their non-disabled peers. We encourage them to create a life that is safe, healthy and this often results in their happiness. They have dreams, set goals and many of them get to live their dream life!
Independent Living Services
Independent Living Services offers structured life skills training for those facing less barriers to living in the community independently.
