LANSING | LARC, a nonprofit organization that provides services to people with developmental disabilities, has opened its 11th Community Integrated Living Arrangement, or CILA.

All LARC CILAs are located within Lansing. One of the three women who moved into this home had been attending the LARC workshop since 1989. She and her mother were thrilled for her to begin a new phase of her life. She is so excited to be living on her own. The other two women moved from two of LARC's current group homes. Together these three women share household chores as well as social activities where new experiences are always fun.

LARC CILAs provide 24-hour care where trained staff offers supervision, training, and support to LARC clients. LARC is grateful for the opportunity to provide care to these individuals and is committed to helping them live a full life where they can continue to grow and thrive, according to a news release.

The women say they are happy to have their new home. While the three women share a living room, kitchen, and family room, each of them has their own bedroom so they are able to have time to themselves.

For more information about LARC and its programs contact Garry Buell or Lisa Vale at (708) 474-1540.

LARC provides services to more than 100 developmentally disabled adults through a wide array of programs including developmental training, job placement, supported employment, and community living arrangements.
