Lutheran Services Carolinas offers comfortable homes in safe residential neighborhoods to adults living with varying degrees of developmental or intellectual disability.
Developmental disabilities are those which begin at any point during an individual’s developmental years up to the age of 22 and may be related to conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy, Fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, or others. People with developmental disabilities often have difficulty with major life activities such as language, mobility, learning, and the self-help skills needed to live independently.
In South Carolina, LSC now has ten residences where adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities can receive the person-centered care and support they need to become as productive and independent as possible. Categorized as Community Training Homes (CTH) by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs, these homes are staffed by professional caregivers who help residents improve their daily living, social, and vocational skills, while enjoying comfortable homes in very typical residential neighborhoods. LSC's Community Training Homes include, in Columbia, Barger Hill, Myers Crest, Rose Cliff, Stone Haven, Westridge, Harmony House, Aull Place, and Victory Downs. Additionally, LSC operates two Community Training Homes in Darlington: Briar Cliff and Briar Gate.
