IAG’s CILA Program is unique in that the individuals’ residents are independently controlled. This means that the individuals rent their own homes, are responsible for the lease and are responsible all associated living expenses. IAG provides the supports for these individuals so they can live meaningfully within the community.Learn more about Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA).
In the Host Family program a family accepts one or two individuals with an Intellectual or Developmental Disability into their home as family members. A family contracts with IAG to be a Host Family provider and must comply with all applicable CILA requirements.Learn more about Host Family.
