Supported Living Services

The Supported Living Services (SLS) Waiver enables adults with developmental disabilities (such as autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and fragile X syndrome) to continue living with their family or independently in the community.


SLS provides a variety of individualized and flexible services and supports for adults, 18 and older, who either:

  • Can live independently with limited supports, or

  • If they need extensive supports, are getting that support from other sources, such as their family.


SLS (sometimes referred to as HCBS-SLS) is intended to supplement supports already available to the person receiving services. The individual receiving services is responsible for his or her living arrangements which can include living with family or in their own home or apartment.
