The History of Community Living Connections
Community Living Connections, Inc. is a local, non-profit agency founded in 2004. CLC currently provides community supported living services to approximately 200 individuals who live throughout Dane County, primarily in Madison, and Stoughton.
Our organization provides support that enables people to live in their own homes and participate in community life. We believe that individuals with disabilities deserve equal opportunities to create their "best life"; they just need additional support in order to do so. Community Living Connections provides in home staff to help with planning, personal cares, medical support, finances, relationship building…etc. We work in partnership with people throughout their lifetime.
The success of our organization is measured by the individual successes of the people we serve. Adults with developmental disabilities living their dreams, traveling, buying their own homes, getting married, working, owning a business - choosing and directing their own lives. Successes that are helped made possible by the dedication and commitment of the people who work here.
