Skills Development Services offers a variety of residential services in Bedford, Coffee and Lincoln Counties. A residential home is a home that is owned by the agency and individuals pay room and board from their income. A supported living home is a home rented or leased by the individuals that live in that home. Presently the agency has 16 homes in which residents live in a variety of settings.
In the homes, residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible. Staff assist them in their daily living activities including personal hygiene, meal preparation, keeping house, activities, and leisure time. Homes range in size from two individuals to ten individuals depending on location.
