LSC offers comfortable homes in residential neighborhoods for adults coping with varying degrees of autism, mental illness, symptoms resulting from traumatic brain injury, or a broad range of intellectual or developmental disabilities. Though self-sufficiency is taught and encouraged in these homes, many clients may continue to live with LSC throughout their lives. Typically referred to as "group homes," LSC offers four such residences in North Carolina.
Mountain Ridge Home - Gastonia, NC
Mountain Ridge serves adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. The program provides 24-hour care and habilitation to support all aspects of resident treatment plans and health and personal care needs.
Lippard Lodge - Clemmons, NC
Named in honor of the family who worked tirelessly to establish the home, Lippard Lodge serves adults with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Residents receive around-the-clock assistance, therapies designed to reduce TBI symptoms, and support with employment and social integration.
Whittecar Home - Raleigh, NC
A residential program for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, Whittecar Home provides its residents with the person-centered care and services they need to reach their fullest potential. Support and 24-hour care to include all aspects of individual treatment plans as well as assistance with personal care needs are available.
Wilson Smith Cottage - Winston-Salem, NC
Wilson Smith Cottage offers individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities the person-centered care and services they need to reach their fullest potential. Named in honor of Rowan County philanthropist Wilson Smith, the home supports all aspects of individual treatment plans as well as health and personal care needs.
Thousands of adults in North Carolina are able to work and live independently despite intellectual or developmental disability. For these individuals, a supportive living environment offers the right combination of structure and support they need to successfully live in the community. LSC provides two such apartment-style supportive living complexes in the Triangle Area of North Carolina.

This program gives its residents an opportunity to live in an independent living community with supervision and on-call support available 24/7.
Raynor Street Apartments - Durham, NC

Building Independence - Raleigh, NC
In an innovative collaboration with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County and The Serving Cup in Raleigh, LSC is providing safe, affordable housing for nine low-income adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
