Creating meaningful opportunities that enrich the lives of people with autism, their families and their communities.



Our Residential Services offer supportive home environments where residents can maximize their potential for independence and pursue their personal outcomes. At present, we maintain thirteen Individual Residential Alternatives (IRA’s) located in suburban communities throughout Western New York.

Celebrating You Residential

Each of our residential sites have evolved atmospheres that express the personalities and interests of the residents who live there. Working with each resident, we learn about their personal outcomes and develop plans to facilitate their achievement. We lend support so residents can attain the highest level of independence possible. In addition to participating in administration of home responsibilities, such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc., residents are encouraged to explore broader life goals. These can include maintaining gym memberships, learning new languages, joining community groups and more.

• Resident outcomes are person-driven
We support residents with a comprehensive plan of care that focuses on multiple dimensions of their lives and is based on person-centered planning.

• 100% of residents have regular opportunities for community integration
People in our homes engage in community life, control personal resources, and receive services in the community just as you or I would.

• 100% of residents have personal safeguards in place that are developed with family input

Safety is our number one concern. We work with families to develop safeguards for their loved ones which allow for continued growth and development.

• 75% of staff have over a year’s tenure
Our staff build rapport and relationships with the people we support and this encourages them to stay with us. Continuity with staff is important for people with autism.
