Community Residences (CR) is a non-profit organization providing quality services to enable individuals with a wide range of disabilities to live as independently and with as high a quality of life as possible.
We are one of the largest providers of services to individuals with disabilities in Virginia, serving consumers in Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties and the City of Richmond. In Maryland, Community Residences serves consumers in Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties and in Baltimore City.
In pursuit of our mission, CR contributes through the provision of medical, therapeutic, educational, vocational, residential and integrative recreational services to the formation of vital relational communities through which our consumers experience greater independence, dignity, fulfillment and happiness.
Formed in 1975 by area residents, churches and government leaders, CR was established to serve people with mental health diagnoses, intellectual disabilities and homelessness. Since that time, CR has grown into a fiscally responsible, consumer-focused agency serving individuals throughout Northern Virginia, the Richmond area and Maryland.
