Residential services are designed to support individuals with making their own choices about where they want to live, with whom they want to live and the kind of lifestyle they wish to lead.

The level and type of support provided is determined by the preferences and needs of the individual through the process of Person Centered Planning. MSSCA strives to offer services that are person centered, provide choice, promote independence and ensure the health and safety of individuals.
