Host Home Provider
In our Host Home program, individuals live in private family homes with dedicated caregivers. These caregivers are advocates, teachers, friends, and family. Every individual in our Host Home program is actively involved in planning their daily routine and provides the services they need in order to be successful.
Our Host Home program begins with a highly personalized matching process. Our organization meticulously selects host homes and ensures they have the skills needed to support the individuals we serve.
The concept is simple – you as a provider, are opening your home to an individual with a disability to provide them with a home – something that they may not otherwise have.
The individuals we serve in our host home program have a wide range of intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities. We specialize in matching the people we serve to dedicated and caring host home providers.
