The Supported Living Services Waiver (SLS), for adults 18+, provides necessary services and supports for individuals with adults with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) so they can remain in their homes and communities.

Working with your Community Center Board (CCB) the adult will be assessed in the following areas to determine which support level they qualify for:
