- Supplemental Pooled Trust
For the benefit of its consumers, CLC Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust was established in 1996 to enable CLC clients and/or their loved ones to set aside monies for supplemental needs without losing government benefits, such as Medicaid and SSI. Six years later, Trust participation was opened to non-CLC consumers.
With the extended life expectancies that disabled individuals can look forward to, planning for their futures has become a critical and immediate need. Therefore, families and loved ones of people with disabilities must plan today for needs that will arise next week, next month, and in years to come. A CLC Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust can be established to provide for participants’ current and future needs without ever jeopardizing their eligibility for government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Social Security (SSI). CLC Trusts enable participants living with a disability to maintain eligibility for government benefits and still set aside monies in a Trust to pay for their own supplemental needs.
Funds deposited in either of the CLC Trusts are available to participants to pay for items not covered by Medicaid or SSI such as vacations, clothing, certain medical expenses, and other extras that enhance their quality of life.

- Community Living Corporation
Community Living Corporation traces its roots to 1966 when the organization grew out of a simple ideal: that adults who are developmentally disabled could live successfully in their community… with a little help.
This innovative approach came ten years before the landmark Willowbrook Consent Decree, which mandated that persons with developmental disabilities be moved from large institutions to houses and apartments in or near their communities.
In 1988, the association was converted to a not-for-profit service provider, Community Living Corporation (CLC), by John Signorelli and a small group of parents headed by Roger Cooper.
