News and Events
How are CLASS-managed residential facilities staffed?
Staffing levels at CLASS’ residential facilities are determined by the needs identified in each individual’s Person-Centered Plan.
Are any in-home services available to people who receive Shared Living services?
Shared Living Providers are responsible for finding persons to care for the hosted individual in the absence of the family. Anyone who provides care for the hosted individual must pass all required background checks before caring for the hosted individual. If a Shared Living Provider needs assistance in caring for the hosted individual, the Shared Living Provider is responsible for paying that caretaker out of the daily rate received for providing the Shared Living service. If you need assistance with this process, or have concerns about any behavioral issues, contact Chris Dial at 620.231.3131 or 800.479.0259 (toll free).
How will Life Skills Enhancement services benefit me or my loved one?
Life Skills Enhancement services will benefit you or your loved one by providing daily, curriculum-based training on socialization activities, recreation, community inclusion, opportunities for volunteerism, environmental awareness/stimulation, following directions, cultural and ethnic traditions, and leisure pursuits.
Is transportation to and from the service center provided?
Yes, CLASS offers scheduled transportation routes to and from our service center locations. There is no fee for this service if you live within a 10-mile radius of the service center.
Can I live in my own home or apartment and still receive Community Living Services?
