Residential & Community-Based Living for Adults with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities

One of LSSI's guiding principles is that each adult (18+) with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities should have a plan to live successfully in their community. With that in mind, LSSI provides person-centered services that range from residential to community-based living, as well as programming at our Shady Oaks Developmental Training Center. All of LSSI’s Intellectual/Developmental Disability housing and programs are licensed by the State of Illinois.
