Nova provides services to individuals in an Individualized Supported Living arrangement (ISL) which allows the individuals to live in their own home with one or two housemates. The goal for each individual is to become as independent as possible and to be able to lead a happy and productive life. Nova staff are present to help each individual reach their goals in life.
The homes are typically 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch-style homes in South Central Springfield. Each home is decorated and furnished based on the individuals tastes and updates are made regularly with the help of donations. Nova has built relationships with area landlords to help ensure each home is taken care of and of high quality. The Department of Mental Health recognizes the individuals’ homes in Nova’s residential services as some of the nicest homes supported by a provider agency.
