Supported Community Living provides direct support for every aspect of individuals’ needs including personal care, social services, and transportation. Our staff of trained professionals encourages individuals with disabilities to increase their independence by achieving self-sufficiency in activities of daily living, completing personal goals, maximizing personal interests, developing meaningful relationships, and engaging as members of the community.

Supported Community Living provides information, support, and services focused on four key categories: Housing, Community, Advocacy, and Goals. SCL serves individuals in over 60 locations throughout Franklin, Madison, and Union counties.
