Home is where memories are made, security is found, and peace is achieved. Home is essential to the mental, physical, and emotional health of any person.
We support people in their own apartments, in group homes, in family homes, or with other families, called “shared living.” Depending on the needs of each individual, different levels of support are offered for each housing option.
Our group homes vary widely in layout and level of support. Some are arranged as single or double apartments connected to a larger common room. These apartments offer a level of independence, as they come equipped with a full kitchen and living space. Other homes are arranged as single bedrooms with the kitchen and laundry in the home’s common room. All of our group homes are staffed 24 hours by highly skilled and qualified support staff, further increasing the safety and security of the home.
Shared living is an arrangement of services provided in the private home of an individual or a family. It’s built on the foundation of life sharing, developing natural supports, and being an active member of the community.
The host home provides services, including assistance, support, and guidance in areas such as daily living, safety and security, community living, healthy lifestyle, social and spiritual, and citizenship and advocacy.
Shared living is an option for any person with a disability who is interested in this type of living environment and is eligible for services in a HCBS waiver through the Department of Human Services.
To live in our homes, you must be a person supported by us. Visit our Admissions page for more information on how to get started.
