Arrowleaf’s Developmental Services area of focus offers programs and services that support individuals living with intellectual or developmental disabilities in Southern Illinois.

For example, our Developmental Services area of focus provides employable skills training, supported employment, direct support care, and daily adaptive skills training intended to help individuals living with disabilities access greater levels of self-sufficiency. We also provide living arrangements where individuals living with disabilities can build life skills and access support. Arrowleaf’s Developmental Services are listed below:


CILA — Community Integrated Living Arrangement

CILA helps adults living intellectual and/or developmental disabilities build well-being by providing them with a living arrangement where 8 or fewer unrelated adults live together with 24/7 support and access to individualized habilitation services under the direction of a community support team.

Intermittent CILA — Intermittent Community Integrated Living Arrangement

Intermittent CILA helps adults living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities maintain safe and stable housing, and work toward greater self-sufficiency and economic independence, by providing those individuals with access to a family home or a residence the person individually manages themselves.

CDS — Community Day Services

CDS (formerly referred to as Developmental Training) helps adults living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities develop and enhance daily adaptive living skills and economic self-sufficiency through out-of-home training designed to foster appropriate behavior, greater independence, and personal choice.

HBS — Home-Based Services

HBS helps individuals living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to remain living in their family home or a home of their own while receiving services that help build their well-being, along with a monthly allocation that can be used to purchase services from authorized community agencies or Personal Support Worker of their choosing.
