Community Living (CILA)

Trinity's Community Living programs are community homes and apartments for one to eight individuals who have developmental disabilities. These homes, or CILAs (Community-Integrated Living Arrangements), are located in residential neighborhoods.

Trinity's CILAs serve nearly 600 persons with disabilities. Each home is staffed by independent living counselors (ILCs), who support the persons living there to maintain the home and participate in community life. In some homes, staff provide supports on an intermittent, as needed basis.

Residents share household duties to the extent possible and appropriate. In addition to participating in an Adult Learning program, therapy program, or working at a job, Community Living participants enjoy regular social activities. These range from going to a baseball game or attending a concert to shopping at their favorite stores. All of the activities are part of a learningful environment that encourages the individual with disabilities to become as capable and independent as possible.

In the Will County area, including adjacent portions of Cook and DuPage counties, CILA homes are located in: Aurora, Braidwood, Crest Hill, Crete, Elwood, Frankfort, Homer Glen, Joliet, Lockport, Manhattan, Matteson, Mokena, Naperville, New Lenox, Olympia Fields, Sauk Village and Wilmington.

In Chicago and the northwest suburbs, CILA homes are located on the North Side, and in Wheeling, Elk Grove Village and Des Plaines. In central Illinois, CILA services are available in the Mascoutah and Peoria areas. And, in southern Illinois, they are available in Carbondale. In addition, similar residential services are provided in the Reno, Nevada area.

For more information on the CILA program, download the pamphlet, Living and Working in the Community (PDF).

If you need information about admission, contact Jennifer Klouse, Director of Admissions, by phone at 815-485-6197, or e-mail.

Upcoming Events

  • Trinity Triumph 5K Run/Walk

    The Trinity Triumph 5K celebrates the triumphs and achievements – big or small – of those who participate and of the adults and children with disabilities and mental illness who are served by Trinity Services. 

    Runners and walkers of all ages gather to provide inspiration, draw strength from others and enjoy the camaraderie while supporting Trinity Services, a 67-year-old non-sectarian, nonprofit organization that serves 3,500 children and adults with disabilities in 31 Illinois communities in Will, Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Madison, Peoria, Jackson, and St. Clair counties as well as in Reno, Nevada. 

    For those who prefer a shorter route, a 1K walk is available. The 5K course is certified by USA Track and Field and the race will be chip-timed for accurate results. Awards will be given to fastest male and female as well as top performers in various age ranges.

    Celebrate your story, be an inspiration or participate in memory of someone. Share your reason for running or walking on race day on the Wall of Triumph and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TrinityTriumph5K.

    The first 200 pre-registered participants will receive a tech T-shirt. 

    GET YOUR REGISTRATION REFUNDED!
    Participants also may opt to create their own fundraising page online while registering. Collect $150 or more in donations for Trinity Services, and we will send you a refund check after race day. Ask friends, family and coworkers to support Trinity’s mission to help people with disabilities live full and abundant lives.
