CLS Celebrating 30 Years – 1983-2013
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Community Living Services, formerly known as Wayne Community Living Services when formed in 1983. Back then, there were roughly 12,000 people with developmental disabilities living in 13 state institutions in Michigan. A large proportion of them were the responsibility of Wayne County. WCLS’s purpose was to return children and adults from state-run institutions and nursing facilities back to their community. In the beginning, WCLS supported people in groups of six living in licensed adult foster care homes. At its peak, CLS oversaw 250 licensed group homes; now less than 80 such homes exist in the CLS system. This is a significant change. Now the majority of people CLS supports lease their own home with companions of their choice. In 1991, CLS became a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Today, CLS is one of the largest non-profit organizations in Michigan. It remains true to its original mission, providing only community-based services and supports to well over 4,000 people with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities, seniors and veterans living in the greater metropolitan area.
