St. Coletta’s of Illinois owns and operates nearly two dozen Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) homes throughout the south and southwest suburbs as well as one Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for individuals with developmental disabilities. Each home is supervised and staffed with qualified Direct Service Professionals to assist residents with cooking, cleaning, personal needs and home maintenance.
