Supported Living Services

Kittitas Interactive Management Services (KIM) offers Supported Living Services (SLS) for adults with developmental disabilities in Yakima and Ellensburg, Washington. Through the Individual Program Plan (IPP) process, KIM assists clients choose where they would like to live. Such as in homes they already own or if they would prefer, to lease a home or apartment in their respective community.

Flexible and Individualized Support

KIM’s SLS services are flexible and tailored to each individual’s needs and preferences. They can include support with general daily activities and emergencies, living in typical arrangements, managing personal finances, obtaining household furnishings, achieving their personal goals and more. The services are also designed to change as an individual’s needs change.

Maintaining Independence and Dignity

One of the key advantages of SLS is that it allows adults with developmental disabilities to maintain their independence and continue living in their own homes. This can be more cost-effective than other forms of housing assistance and can also help to preserve an individual’s dignity and sense of self-worth. SLS also provides a sense of community and social support, offers ongoing training and support, and coordinates access to healthcare services.

Specialized Support for Challenging Behaviors

KIM is known for their expertise in working with individuals who have challenging behaviors. We understand that these behaviors are often symptoms of treatable causes and that with therapeutic supports, individuals can be supported safely in the community.
