About Us

Supportive Living Services, Inc. is a private, non-profit corporation that provides quality services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The agency started providing residential services July 1, 1983. Originally named Human Development of Erie, Inc., our mission was to assist developmentally disabled adults achieve their maximum potential for independence, while guarding their rights so no resident would be coerced to do anything against his/her will.

In July of 1983, we served sixteen people in group homes and in a semi-independent living situation. Today we provide a variety of services including residential services, home and community habilitation and companion services; individualized services and representative payee services. We serve fifty residents in fifteen group home settings and support twenty-one in independent living.

Our name was changed to Supportive Living Services, Inc. in 1998. We continued to provide quality services to individuals with developmental disabilities by treating them with dignity and respect and encouraging each person receiving service to make choices and decisions about their life, attain their maximum potential for independence and become integrated into their community. Over the years our agency has grown.
