This facility is also known as Lakewood Apartments. It is a smallish, modern building designed to house independently living people who have developmental disabilities. With only 5 apartments, residents enjoy a quiet, homey atmosphere, where friendships have been strong and longlasting. Some residents of Lakewood work at an affiliate agency, Diversified Services, Inc. in Siren.
Occupancy is limited to households in which the head or spouse is at least 62 years of age. In response to the 2001 tornado, which destroyed numerous residential and commercial buildings, CCB Housing Management was successful in securing U.S. government and other support to build Lilac Grove, completed in July of 2008. This new and well-appointed building has 14 one-bedroom apartments, a community room with a kitchen and vaulted ceilings and a four-season porch which serves as another communal area for reading, playing games and just relaxing. Built- in emergency response and visitor entry systems make Lilac Grove state-of-the art for security and convenience.
