The Charles Lea Center

Trillium and The Charles Lea Center LogoThe Charles Lea Center is a provider agency that will soon be providing services within our catchment area. The mission of the Charles Lea Center is to support people where they live, work, and play.

A  few years ago, the Charles Lea Center began a paradigm shift within their organization to move from supporting people within residential settings supporting people in community settings with the assistance of innovative technology. The program born out of this paradigm shift was the Transitions Program. As a result of the program, the Charles Lea Center has supported a number of people over the past couple of years to  transition from residential settings into their own homes and/or apartments. The Charles Lea Center continues to support people to transition to more independent living settings of their choice. Because of the transitions to more independent settings with the support of innovative technology, the Charles Lea Center has seen improved outcomes and an overall improvement in the quality of life for the people that they support.

Trillium Health Resources’ mission is transforming the lives of people in need by providing them with ready access to quality care. To help bring this mission to life for the people that we support who recive Innovations Waiver services, Trillium is launching a new initiative with The Charles Lea Center. This initiative is specifically focused on using innovative technology coupled with services to support individuals to live in the homes/apartments of their choosing and become as independent as possible

This initiative will support anyone receiving Innovations Waiver funding who would like to transition to live independently (regardless of their current living situation).

The initiative will potentially take place in the Wilmington or Greenville areas as determined by interest and community resources available.

Trillium Health Resources will host two events that will provide the opportunity for anyone interested in this initiative to meet the staff from The Charles Lea Center. People attending will also have the opportunity to become familiar with the culture and philosophy of the Charles Lea Center and what they have been able to do for the people that they support. Lastly, we will also provide information regarding what Trillium is doing to support this initiative within our catchment area and identify individuals who would like to become a part of this initiative.
