Networks Supported Living Services is designed to provide case management to individuals with disabilities allowing them to live independently. Independent living means having control over one’s life. Individuals in Supported Living benefit from assistance to explore options and make informed decisions. Individuals are empowered to choose their own paths, including taking risks that promote growth and independence.
Networks case managers consist of Bachelor’s and Master’s level professionals from a variety of backgrounds, including social work, psychology, education and special education, nursing, counseling and vocational rehabilitation.
Networks Supported Living Services were piloted in 1980 with the support of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission Division of Independent Living (MRC-IL) to assist students at the Massachusetts Hospital School transition to adult services. In 1996, Networks began providing supported living services to individuals supported by the Department of Developmental Services. In 2013, Networks began to provide services to consumers supported by the Medicaid Waiver programs, Acquired Brain Injury and Money Follows the Person. Today, Networks serves consumers across Southeastern Massachusetts from young adults to older adults and of all disabilities.
