Supported Living is a residential program enabling individuals to live alone or with one or two others, and in most cases a staff person to support them. Supported Living allows a person greater personal choice about all aspects of his or her home and community life. Progress provides access to services regardless of a person's level of ability, and works to support them according to their needs and desires.
Respite Services is a program that provides supports to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities who need to temporarily relocate from their current living situation due to an increase in behaviors or medical needs. Progress will accept referrals from other supported living agencies, families, and DIDD. Payment is through Medicaid waiver or private pay.
Family Model Residential Services (formerly adult foster care) is a residential program for people with disabilities who choose to live in a home other than that of their family of origin. The person becomes a part of that family and participates in all family functions and activities. Progress is authorized through the State of Tennessee to locate, certify and monitor Family-Model providers. Its Program Manager is responsible for overseeing the care given to people who live with a Family-Model provider.
