In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, Community Living Services will be closing our Wayne building effective Monday, March 23, 2020. While we'd initially hoped to close the offices for only one week, the Michigan Governor signed an Executive Order to "Stay Home, Stay Safe" until at least April 13th." Please be assured that this does not mean CLS is closing our business operations or stopping our services; it means our employees will be working remotely, implementing telehealth practices, and only coming to the building for urgent /essential business matters. We are keeping our Customer Service line open to assist people who call through our front desk, our employees are checking their voicemail messages and emails daily, and our Support Coordinators all remain available for the people we serve to contact via cell phones.

Community Living Services is closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak in accordance with guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) at www.michigan.gov/coronavirus.
We are striving to serve you in the best way possible while also protecting your health and adhering to the guidelines put forth by our state and federal government.
Given the circumstances, some of your services will likely need to be provided via telepractice (over the phone) over the upcoming weeks. This has been approved and encouraged by our state leaders at the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services.View More

Governor directs all non-critical businesses to temporarily close, all Michiganders to stay home or six feet away from others during COVID-19 crisis
LANSING, Mich. -- Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order (EO 2020-21), directing all Michigan businesses and operations to temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. The order also directs Michiganders to stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store.View More
