Community Residential Services
Our Community Residential Services are driven by individuals' interests, choice, and needs. Individuals we support are encouraged to participate fully in the development of there personal centered plan and to exercise their choices in setting goals and directing their lives. Community safety is a priority of our programs as some individuals we support have either forensic involvement or maladaptive behaviors that can impact society. Therefore, Shura provides 24-hour awake/alert supervision to individuals receiving select services.
In addition to providing traditional residential support and vocational services, Shura has created an environment that produces opportunities for participants to live full lives. Our participants are encouraged to build romantic and platonic relationships and may live with and/or a significant other under the auspices of Shura (regardless of sexual orientation.) Participants are also encouraged to practice their faith, enjoy hobbies of their choice, and pursue entrepreneurship. Other program features include:

Community Integration (activities of choice)

Accommodation for Dietary Restrictions
Personal Support Services
Personal Support Services were previously known as Community Supported Living Arrangements (CSLA). Individuals receiving personal support can have staffing for an allotted amount of time each day or week as tailored by there personal centered plan and family/natural supports.
Persons receiving personal supports utilize these services for various reasons, such as assistance with daily living skills, managing medical appointments, assistance with transportation, skill-building, and access to community integration. Besides, persons receiving personal support through Shura, are also allowed to participate in any of the community integration activities that those receiving our residential support participate in. This includes weekend activities and vacations.
