Community Living of Rhode Island is a diversified dynamic Agency that goes above and beyond support provisions to Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities. We recognize and appreciate personal uniqueness and cultural diversity. We offer personalized assistance that builds upon individual strengths and abilities. We empower individuals to exercise choice and take charge of their own lives. We are family oriented and our main objective is to encourage self-advocacy and the development of other social, behavioral, and daily living skills.
Other than our commitment to helping individuals lead full quality lives as independently as possible, what sets us apart is our willingness to carefully mitigate risks when developing new models of services that are in keeping with what we learn, by listening to the individuals and families. This art of human innovation has led the Service Recipients in participating in various employment readiness trainings that are backed up with structured support services that meet their various needs.
Recognizing the fact that the abilities of individuals with disabilities changes as they grow and develop into older individuals, we value their common humanity, by honoring their desires and choices in making a life for themselves.

To this end, we focus on Employment for all initiatives, and have designed recreational and social programs which broaden one's connections and improved self esteem that ultimately prepares individuals in acquiring new skills and friendships.
