What if my family situation changes and I can no longer provide Shared Living Services?
Shared Living services contracts may be cancelled by either the shared living provider or the individual, but a 30-day notice of cancellation is required. A secondary plan is in place for any individual placed with a shared living provider to ensure that the individual’s needs are met in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
Can I schedule a tour of the residential facilities?
Yes, CLASS staff can arrange a tour of some of our residential facilities. Remember that these sites are homes for the individuals who live there, so permission from the individual is always obtained before CLASS allows any visitors into the home. To schedule a tour of our residential facilities or to discuss our Community Living Services, contact Gretchen Andrews at 620.429.1212 or (toll free).
