DD Residential Services
Every person deserves the opportunity to live an active, fulfilling life. Making that goal a reality is precisely the intent of the Residential Services programs we provide at Goodwill Columbus. A safe and welcoming environment serves as the foundation for a comprehensive approach to helping individuals with developmental disabilities reach their full potential.
At Goodwill Columbus, Onsite Residence is much more than simply a place to live for adults with developmental disabilities. It’s a place to build a life. Here, residents participate in activities, work or attend classes based on the belief that every person has inherent worth and value. We recognize that individuals’ self-esteem and dignity are related to their ability to function in society and control their lives. We provide opportunities for residents to develop the skills that will enable them to live as independently as possible.
Goodwill Columbus’s Supported Living services are a lifeline for nearly 125 people with disabilities living in their own homes in Central Ohio. Each week, we provide over 7,000 hours of in-home services at more than 90 locations in Franklin County. We provide 24-hour on-call support, and our staff is trained to address many vital needs, including medication administration, CPR, first aid, behavior support and crisis intervention.
