Support Services of South Central Iowa

Supporting people in gaining independent living

What is Support Services of South Central Iowa?

Support Services of South Central Iowa, LLC (SS of SCI) was started in 2001 to fill a need for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) in and around the Adair County area.  The LLC was formed and housed on the square in Greenfield where it continues to reside today serving individuals with disabilities.

 

The first waiver home opened in May 2002, which allowed SS of SCI to provide supported community living services to help individuals with their daily needs up to 24 hours a day and in the comfort of their own apartment or home shared with others.  Our services allow our consumers to become independent, integrated members of the community and assure that the services they receive are individualized and flexible to meet outcome-based goals.
