Residential Services

(Living Center)

The Living Center is EDC's structured, transitional residential unit. The program is an accessible 20-bed dormitory-style facility featuring a large living area, large kitchen, and recreation room.

The objective of the Living Center is to provide recreation and socialization to a heterogeneous group of young adults with disabilities who are learning to live independently in the community through a variety of physical, social, and cultural activities. Residents are at least 18 years old, have a severe disability, can maintain self care or arrange for the care of their own personal needs, and are likely to be capable of living on their own within approximately six months.
