Individual and Family Support/Supported Living Program

Supported Living Programs for Acadiana

Individual and Family Support/Supported Living (IFS/SLP) Program

The Arc of Acadiana is committed to supporting all people with developmental disabilities as they pursue their dreams, wants and needs. We create custom-tailored supported living programs based on each individual client’s capabilities and goals. This both enhances our clients’ quality of life, and provides support for the families who care for them.

Arc of Acadiana’s philosophy is that people with developmental disabilities deserve to live, work and play in the least restrictive environment possible, with the support systems they require to be safe and successful. The IFS/SL Program provides whatever degree of assisted living is needed to enable those rights, whether the client currently lives independently or with family.

We encourage our clients to pursue individual interests and become involved in a variety of social and recreational opportunities in order to promote fellowship, friendship and connection. We offer training in skills for independent living, such as:

  • Self-Care
  • Housekeeping
  • Accessing Community Activities
  • Money Management
  • Emergency Response 
  • Social Interaction
  • Traveling Within One’s Community
