24 Hour Residential Services

To The Rescue offers 24-hour residential housing and services for individuals with disabilities. Our single-family homes are in neighborhoods close to community resources that include shopping, transportation, and entertainment.

Our residents live in a small group setting and receive all the support they need. But they also enjoy the same types of independence and freedom they would have living on their own. Our round-the-clock staff provides assistance with meal preparation, medication administration, daily activities, and transportation.

To The Rescue in Iowa is opening new supportive community living homes

We are currently accepting referrals for new supportive community living homes in Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities.  Located in residential neighborhoods, these single family homes are each being designed to provide tailored services and supports for individuals with disabilities.

Several of the homes focus on meeting the needs of individuals with autism.  Personalized support is provided that includes ongoing opportunities for community engagement while respecting each individual’s need for structure and routine. Stop by and see us at the Corridor Autism Resource Expo (CARE) 2017 at the Cedar Rapids Downtown Public Library! The expo will be held Saturday, April 1st from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

One home is in the process of being remodeled and when finished, it will have two living spaces designed for individuals who utilize wheelchairs.  A private entrance leads to a fully accessible kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.  In addition to a spacious bedroom, each resident also will have their own living room adjacent to the kitchen which features lowered countertops and appliances and an open island to make food preparation easy and convenient.
