Southern Illinois Community Support Services Announces Name Change to My Life My Home
Southern Illinois Community Support Services, a Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) provider, has changed its name to My Life My Home effective January 1, 2022. The name change and new company logo are part of a rebranding plan to better reflect what they do and what differentiates them from other providers.
A CILA is a community home for adults with developmental disabilities who also receive daily support. The organization’s first CILA opened in 1993 under Southern Illinois Living Centers. In 2000, Southern Illinois Community Support Services was established to manage three CILAs. The organization has since grown to eight locations throughout the Metro East.
The renaming process involved receiving feedback from several different stakeholders. Board members, employees, individuals and their family members had the chance to complete questionnaires and provide suggestions.
“We strive to provide the greatest all around care to individuals in their home,” said Michael Brave, CEO and President. “Through a person-centered planning model, they make individualized daily choices in their home. That is why we selected My Life My Home as our new name.”
Mary Lynam-Miller, Executive Director at My Life My Home stated, “We are an organization that shows flexibility and are able to adjust to individuals wants and needs. We find ways to connect with the individuals and ensure they feel happiness and fulfillment in their lives. We look for every opportunity to help them reach their goals.”
At My Life My Home, individuals with developmental disabilities are provided support to live as independently as possible within the community. My Life My Home manages eight Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILAs) in Belleville, Breese, Mascoutah and New Baden, IL. A dedicated team provides services with integrity and respect to ensure the highest quality of life tailored to each individual. Their mission is to passionately support each person in living a meaningful and satisfying life! For more information, please go to: www.MyLifeMyChoiceMyHome.org
