    Supportive LivingSupportive Living services provide support to individuals living in community apartments. New Visions provides two levels of Supportive Living services. More intensive services are provided in Shippensburg and Carlisle where New Visions maintains a staff apartment in the same building as supported apartments so that there is staff available 24 hours a day. Individuals may also receive a less intensive level of support in Chambersburg, Waynesboro, Shippensburg, and Carlisle in their own apartments in the community where they have as much or little contact with staff as they need. In Newville, military veterans who have previously been homeless receive Supportive Living services in a 6-bedroom home with shared living space. Individuals receiving Supportive Living services work closely with a case manager to develop goals for independent living. The case managers also can attend important meetings and provide some transportation to appointments. Services should be accessed through the County Base Services Unit (BSU).CumberlandNew Visions Inc.New Visions Inc.
