Supported Living Services (SLS)

The STEP Supported Living Services program provides services to disabled adults who are supported by the Alta California Regional Center. We accept new referrals from all 21 California regional centers, with the expectation that the person will be moving to the areas we serve.

We provide individualized services to meet the individual's daily living needs. These services include one-on-one instruction with a Supported Living Services (SLS) Coordinator as well as support staff that assists with personal care, household chares and all aspects of daily living.

We also specialize in providing services for the Deaf and Deaf-Blind at all ability levels. All staff for the Deaf folks we support are fluent in American Sign Language.

We accept individuals who need 24-hour support as well as those who need only minimal assistance.

Our job is to help the people we support to find a safe and comfortable living environment while teaching them to become as independent as possible.

Each person will have the opportunity to live where they wish (within their economic means), the right to determine with whom they live, and the right to choose the support staff that will be working with them in their homes. These are the basic principles of SLS.

These services are designed to provide another living option for individuals with disabilities who may need more support than traditional independent living programs.
