As one of the first community providers of services to people with developmental disabilities in Rhode Island, Rhode Island Community Living and Supports (RICLAS) has over 25 years of experience in providing a network of supports tailored to individual needs.

RICLAS is licensed by the State of Rhode Island as a provider of services. We follow all applicable state laws and regulations, and receive oversight by the Office of Facilities and Program Standards and Licensure within the Department of Behavioral Healthcare, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals. The standards set by the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) form the framework for our service system and are fully described under rules and regulations.

RICLAS supports adult men and women in a variety of homes, apartments, and day support services throughout the state. Our trained and experienced staff advocates for individual rights, promote opportunities, and help people develop competencies in both residential and work activity settings.
