Promoting Independence, Enriching Lives
About the SISO Organization
SISO is a community based organization, and our homes reflect that ideal. Our clients all know one another and most of the family homes we staff and maintain are a short walk from one another. We provide innovative residential adult foster care services to intellectually and developmentally disabled adults in Lane County. We started SISO in 2006 with the purchase of one family home and a contract to serve one individual and 0 employees. We have been very successful supporting highly challenging individuals, and have continued to grow our organization out of our passion to provide the best possible individualized supports based around positive behavior supports and the principle of self determination. We currently operate 6 homes and support 21 people with over 50 employees. Our focus is twofold: 1.) To provide the highest quality person centered services that meet the complex and changing needs of the supported individual. 2.) To ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, reaches their full potential in safe, supervised settings.
