In 1979, Quilceda Community Services began providing residential care for adults with developmental disabilities. Providing quality, individualized care in homey, low-income residences has been the paramount concern of the agency since inception.
This agency concern continues to the present. Quilceda Community Services is known for having highly trained, compassionate, long-term caregivers who are dedicated to their disabled clients. In a profession with high employee turnover, the agency rarely has unfilled positions.
Quilceda Community Services is qualified to receive funds as a Certified Supportive Living Provider, licensed as an Adult Family Home Provider, and as a Private Pay Provider. The Residential Manager oversees all residential sites and has a good working knowledge of the regulations/expectations for each funding category.
Though each residential site has different funding sources and functions differently, the care provided to clients remains the same - consistent, quality, and individualized.
The agency promotes healthy living for it's tenants and employees. Being a tobacco-free agency, clients can be assured of no exposure to second hand smoke. Clients are encouraged to make healthy food choices with small portions, variety of foods, and selective goodies as a treat. Staying active is encouraged with routine walking, dancing, and bowling each week. Cognitive wellness is maintained when clients attend recreation day programs, volunteer job sites, and community events.
The Residential Program is always in need of Support Instructional Staff to support the Special Needs Clients we serve. If you would like to apply for this rewarding opportunity, please call Connie Smith at 360-653-2324.
