Shore’s Community Integrated Living Arrangements (CILA) consists of three sites: a home in Evanston for two men, a home in Skokie for six men, and a home in Skokie for seven women. 

Twenty-four hour staff supervision is provided in each home to help individuals with specialized needs become as independent as they are able. 

The goal in the CILAs is to deliver services, which provide for the total array of mental health and developmental service needs to support and assure integrated community living.
