ABOUT US

CLO was founded in 2001 by two young men and their mothers who were determined to help people live in and be a part of their community and attain their personal goals with focus on “ability” instead of “disability.”

Creative Living Options is committed to supporting the goals of the people receiving services by providing adaptations and supports that allow people to live their lives as close to what they desire as possible.

Creative Living Options, Inc. provides Supported Living Services to adults who receive services through Alta California Regional Center. Services are tailored to provide the support needs of the individual, as described in The Lanterman Act (The Lanterman Act, Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations Chapter 3 – Community Services, Sub Chapter 19 – Supported Living Services, Article 2 – General Provisions).

5 Principles

Kings-gameThe five principles of supported living services include a home of one’s own; choice and self-direction; relationships; community membership; and flexible, tailored supports.

Circles of Support

circle-supportWe are dedicated to building Circles of Support for each person receiving services that includes family, friends and professionals chosen by that individual who are committed to a team approach.

Non-Negotiable Standards

Lori-Nishimura-and-Crystal-Andrade_Alaska-cruise-4_3Our philosophy and values commit us to non-negotiable standards in providing quality individualized services and offering choice and self-direction while insuring the health and safety of those all involved.

A LIFE THAT FITS

When I talk about CLO, the word ‘individual’ keeps coming up; the focus is on my daughter as an individual. With Supported Living, my daughter’s orientation to life in her community is very confident. She knows that she belongs. She wants to contribute.  —Bonnie

I love to live alone, because it makes me feel in control of my life. —A.N.

CLO is fun, I like them because they are nice to me. — A.T.

Supported Living through CLO has given Aaron a chance to live on his own, away from his parents, but in a way that his parents could feel comfortable with.
—Aaron’s father

I’m constantly amazed by how many things nobody ever thought the people we support could do. CLO doesn’t limit the people we support or force them to keep their thinking in a box. –support staff member

I never had thought that Supported Living would work for my son. I thought he was too disabled. I couldn’t be happier with the way it has worked out for him.
–Laraine

We’ve had a number of people who have worked with Michael for a long time. I think that’s due in part to the attention CLO pays to screening and matching.
