The Residential Program

Our residential program is community based with homes and apartments located throughout Lake County.


Individuals enjoy community living in one of our 17 residential homes. The homes provide adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities a supportive 24/7 living arrangement.


NorthPointe offers support services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental illness who live independently in the community either alone or with a roommate.

The Killian Center

Located in Lake County, the center provides a variety of day programs which includes classes, job training and community employment. The Killian Center is also where administrative services are located.

Once accepted, items that cannot be used will be donated
to another not-for-profit organization or sold. If sold, 100%
of proceeds will provide much-needed support services
for people with disabilities and mental illness.
