About Community Residences (CR)

For over 40 years, CR has embraced the power of community, providing dignity, building self-esteem and improving the quality of life of individuals with disabilities.  CR recognizes that every person should be provided opportunities to live in a community of their choosing. CR also recognizes the rights of every person to build a meaningful life within that community, based on personal choice. 

CR strengthens our community by promoting the independence and well-being of at-risk youth and of adults or families with mental health and/or intellectual disabilities. CR’s personalized professional supports ensure everyone is provided opportunities to live fulfilling, independent and productive lives.

Depending upon individual need, CR provides support ranging from one-on-one counseling or skill-building services in the community, to 24-hour nursing in a residential setting. Reinforced through participation in everyday activities like shopping, using public transportation, working and volunteering, CR provides tools for individuals to become part of the natural give-and-take that exists within a healthy community.

Events such as the CR EmbRACE 5K and Fun Run help raise much-needed funding to advance the lives of those CR supports. Your support as a team leader, participant, volunteer, donor or sponsor will help to  ensure the rights and opportunities for every person CR embraces to live a meaningful life today and in their futures.  CR's community events raise awareness and provide valuable opportunities for the individuals CR supports to engage with the community.
