Our History

Helping Others Help Themselves

In 1987, New England Residential Services, Inc. made a commitment to the Department of Developmental Services to accept and welcome individuals who were at that time living in one of the many institutions in the state. We opened our first two group homes in the fall of 1987. In the spring of 1989, we continued to grow and opened four more homes successfully. Our two newest homes opened in the fall of 2006.

Since 1990, New England Residential Services, Inc. has also been supporting people who live in their own apartments who need less than 24 hours of daily supports. Currently, we support ten group homes and four apartment programs.

Our supports are focused on the individuals and their home, however, we also work closely with vocational and day programs. We encourage active participation in the community. Our staff assist in all areas in order that each individual will achieve the best quality of life.

All people have the right to make choices about their lives. Our job is to facilitate those choices and to work toward positive outcomes.

New England Residential Services is a private non-profit agency funded by the State of CT through the Department of Developmental Services, Department of Social Services and in some cases through the Department of Children and Families. We provide residential options in central and southern Connecticut. Supported Living Apartments are located in the Kensington and Middletown area.
