CSAAC oversees 52 homes in Montgomery County, MD, providing community
living to children and adults with autism. Homes are staffed around the
clock by counselors who teach independent living skills such as
housekeeping, personal hygiene, shopping, money management,
communication, telephone use, and leisure activities. These homes
provide individuals with an alternative to living in an institution or
in their parents' homes, and allow residents to exercise independence as
Families of adults volunteer time and expertise seeking appropriate
homes and loans through a nonprofit corporation, Residential Continuum,
Inc. Typically two or three individuals live in each home, which are
appropriately staffed according to individual needs.
