Partnerships for People provides many choices in living arrangements for individuals with disabilities or other challenges. Supervision can range from as little as two hours a week to 24 hours a day. The decision of where to live reflects the life plan that has been developed in collaboration with the individual, their family and/or other interested people who are part of the individual’s life.
Partnerships for People Inc. prides itself on its talented and professional staff which provides a careful balance of independence and monitored care to our residents.
Our network-consisting of businesses, community organizations, advocacy and social service partners, family friends, volunteers and government support representatives-provides a foundation of resources and opportunities for the people served by Partnerships for People to provide full access and inclusion within their communities.
The goal is to provide a nurturing and person-centered support to achieve each individual’s life plan whether it be a home of their own, securing a job one can be proud of, or participating as an active member in the community of their choice.
Our Supported Employment program offers creative employment solutions to recruiting, training, and consulting concerns. Our level of commitment is unique, which distinguishes us from other employment services. The Supported Employment Specialists use a person-centered approach when servicing individuals.

In-Home Supports: Our Support Staff can provide instructional support teaching daily living life skills, such as food preparation, grocery shopping, and laundry skills, with the goal of helping each person become more self-dependent.
