History Of ERLI

Erie Residential Living is a not-for-profit corporation located in Sandusky, Ohio. ERLI has two licensed homes, one for men and one home for women. The first licensed home, the women's home, was opened in February 1977. The second home, the men's home, opened in May of 1979. Each of the two licensed homes were originally established to help 8 residents each. However, legislation has changed throughout the years and each home now provides exceptional services to 5 individuals each (10 total). This housing option allows for ERLI staff to work on increasing the residents' independent living skills. Additionally, having multiple residents in one home allows for each person to increase their social skills. It is also Erie Residential Living's goal to have the residents become active participants in their communities. ERLI staff have open conversations with the residents to find out how they would like to become more active members of their communities.

Erie Residential Living, Inc. has a program known as the Supported Living program. This program started in 1987. The Supported Living Program allowed for Erie Residential Living to open another annex office in downtown Sandusky. This program has ERLI staff traveling to an individual's home or apartment and providing services in that environment. ERLI staff will work in the individual's home or apartment and will work on developing social and independent living skills. This program also focuses on getting an individual more involved in their community.
