About Life Services Alternatives
Life Services Alternatives provides exceptional community living and programs for adults with developmental disabilities.
In our county, there is a housing shortage for adults with development disabilities. In the past 4 years, over 40 programs have closed due staffing issues, low government rates and the high cost of living in the Silicon Valley. A high percentage of adults with developmental disabilities live at home with their parents. Unfortunately, parents age, have health issues, or they can no longer care for their adult child. Parents worry about who will take care of their adult child when they no longer can.
Life Services Alternatives helps to alleviate those worries. We opened our first three homes in 2004 in Santa Clara. It was a goal of Life Services Alternatives to establish homes where residents could grow and thrive in a non-institutional setting. We currently have 15 licensed homes throughout Santa Clara County (San Jose, Campbell, Santa Clara and Morgan Hill) that are home to men and women who are developmentally disabled. Our residents’ range in age from 20 to 80 years old with a wide range of disabilities. 16th home is in the process of renovation and retrofitting to meet the community home standards. Five of our fifteen homes are for individuals who have special health care needs and intensive support needs. Our remaining nine homes, are home to residents who need 24-hour a day, non-medical care and supervision. It is Life Services Alternatives goal to continue to open new homes in our county where residents can live their best possible lives. Your support is needed to reach our goal. Your donation is greatly appreciated and will help change the lives of a developmentally disabled adult.
