Community Residences

Massachusetts & Connecticut

Follow CIL:            

CIL partners with service providers to develop licensed community residences for persons with developmental disabilities and others in need of supportive residential settings. The homes allow persons with disabilities to live in community-based, non-institutional environments with an appropriate level of staff assistance.

Properties are acquired, and homes are built or renovated to agency specifications, then leased to nonprofit, residential service providers under long-term capital lease arrangements. CIL secures 100 percent financing to cover all acquisition, construction, and soft costs. Lessee agencies are not required to contribute any equity towards the development. Upon the end of the lease term, CIL donates the property at no cost to the lessee agency.

CIL’s staff has extensive experience in all aspects of such specialized development: site acquisition, land use, building and fire code issues, zoning, architectural design, accessibility features, licensing requirements, and property management. At CIL, we work very closely with lessee providers on all site selection and design issues in an effort to customize each home to the needs of its residents.
