Catholic Residential Services is a non-profit agency dedicated to fostering the spiritual, moral, intellectual, and physical growth of people with developmental disabilities. Our goal is to maintain the delicate balance of providing as much care as needed while still respecting each person’s need for independence. Catholic Residential Services is a dynamic agency that provides care to individuals with developmental disabilities in residential homes, apartments and family homes. CRS is constantly striving to improve to meet the needs of those we support. Working as a team, the individual, the family, Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services, and CRS develop and deliver a personalized plan which ensures and enhances:
Health, safety, personal care and other daily living needs.
Social and recreational interests
Personal and spiritual interests
In 1992, Catholic families in Cincinnati asked the Archbishop to respond to the needs for their children with developmental disabilities. Catholic Residential Services was founded as the church’s response to this call for service. CRS started with two Supportive Living homes, one for men in Price Hill and a home for women in Mt. Airy. Today, CRS serves men and women in Supportive Living homes and those living independently in apartments, as well as those living in their own homes throughout Cincinnati.
