Description of Service
Group homes serve a wide variety of developmental disabilities including mental retardation, autism spectrum disorders, communication disorders, mental health issues, and others, with many specializing in one particular area. The level of independence, of which each person is capable, is a determining factor in where each person lives. Most homes are staffed 24 hours per day. The number of people living in the group homes range between two and six and may be co-ed, all women, or all men. The ages range from children as young as ten to adults of any age.
In all the group homes, people are encouraged and supported to be as independent as possible. Many of the group homes are barrier-free making them accessible to people who need to use walkers or wheelchairs.
