"While in Virginia (1998-2012), John lived in a number of group homes, all run by Community Residences Inc. Staffed by highly trained and very caring individuals, these homes provided an exceptional quality of life for John and his housemates and we are thankful to CRi for the care and professionalism they showed every step of the way."
