The Arc offers residential care in both Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILAs). CILA homes are a comfortable, welcoming place for anyone to live.
Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILAs) provide services for individuals who live on their own, with family members or in one of The Arc’s nine group homes. Services range from intermittent support to 24-hour assistance and promote optimal independence in daily living, self-sufficiency, and integration into the community.
Our facilities and services are of the utmost quality and standards and are licensed through the Illinois Department of Human Services and are CARF-accredited.

Located within residential neighborhoods, these homes provide optimal access to community-based services for individuals with disabilities who greatly value being a part of a larger community.
