This program is licensed as a 2-bed level 1 program and meets all Home and Community-Based Standards (HCBS). It serves individuals with intellectual disabilities who require a high level of support. This is a split-level home. The upstairs has an open-concept kitchen, living and dining area, full bath, bedroom and staff office. The ground level has a small kitchenette, living room area, bedroom, laundry room (shared), and bath with a shower. Two individuals reside at this program, each having their own living space which they are encouraged to decorate according to their personal tastes. They work on increasing their safety and independent skills, as well as community inclusion.

Individuals in this home are working on a variety of safety skills and being part of their local community. The direct care staff assists individuals with building skills in the areas of social skills, community inclusion, being good neighbors, medication & behavior management, attendance at religious services, leisure activities, day program services, appointments, and family or guardian visits.  Each plan is crafted with the treatment team and the individual’s input to be unique to their needs.

In addition, ASI provides different activities throughout the year for all to join such as cooking classes, bingo, bowling, and game afternoons. We sponsor agency-wide events such as cooking competitions (Chopped or Chili Cook-Off), Annual Wellness Day Event, sporting events, art classes, and other fun activities to participate in as desired.

ASI-NE’s mission is to support people to experience meaningful lives by aiding with all aspects of daily living, health management, community integration, and safety monitoring with an individual, person-centered approach.
