Our History & Mission

Autumn Ridge Supportive Living Facility (ARSLF), a 45-apartment facility for seniors operated by Family Counseling Center, Inc., was certified on April 15, 2008, by the Illinois Department of Healthcare & Family Services™ Bureau of Long Term Care to begin the admission application process and accept residents. Our first resident moved in on April 28th of that year.
