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).
