CCLS Western Region
Supporting La Crosse, Vernon, Monroe,
Richland, Crawford and Grant Counties
In 1974, CCLS opened our first program in La Crosse to begin serving the Western Region. In 1978, we opened our first Jackson County program. The first Trempealeau County program began in 1980, and in 1987, we opened an Adult Family Home in Monroe County. We began providing services in Vernon County in 1998.
Family Care in La Crosse set the stage for many additional services. The recreation program originated in April 2002. In addition, Family Care allowed us the opportunity to open ten more Adult Family Homes in La Crosse County.
We currently provide services to more than 120 individuals with disabilities in Vernon, La Crosse, and Monroe Counties. Western Region provides the following residential programs: Three to four bed Adult Family Homes, live-by apartment programs and 24-hour support programs. In addition, our quality staff of more than 140 also provides day services, daily living skills training, supportive home care, respite and recreational services.
