Mission & History

Community Living is a Frederick, Maryland-based nonprofit that was founded in 1979 to support people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Dealing with uncertainty in the face of COVID-19

Here at CLI, we can’t pretend that things are business as usual. They just aren’t. Every day, pandemic  or no, we are charged with the care and protection of over 150 individuals whose needs and wellbeing are our responsibility. We do not take this lightly in any way. In this time of uncertainty, we are working even harder to protect the safety and health of the people who depend on us every day.
