The focus of the Cedars Residential Program is to provide an active, safe, healthy, and supportive environment for the individuals at Cedars, whether they reside in the Generoso Pope, Jr. Ross Residences or in a Cedars group home. Helping residents to lead a life built on their preferences and strengths is a core value at Cedars. If you are interested in joining our Residential Program visit our Admissions page.
Cedars partners with families and residents to select the perfect residential option. A tremendous amount of care goes into helping residents choose where they will be happy and can be fully supported to live a happy and productive life. To meet a variety of needs, we offer a range of residential options in our Generoso Pope Jr. Ross Residences, as well as in eight community-based homes.
