Individuals in the program face everyday challenges and opportunities with the support of dedicated and trained staff. On most days’ individuals are transported to work or a day program they are scheduled to attend. Individuals are in charge of planning and cooking their own meals, receive assistance in budgeting, medication administration, socializing, doctor visits, shopping, and attending activities in the community. Intellectually and/or Developmentally Disabled individuals receive assistance as indicated in their Individualized Support Plan.

Family and friends are encouraged to be an active part of the program and help assure safe living conditions for loved ones.

Funding for Residential services are paid through the Office of Developmental Programs, Intellectual Disabilities Waiver Programs. For questions regarding our services and how to apply for funding please reach out to the following:

Family Living provides an alternative to traditional group homes enabling those with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities the opportunity to choose to live in an environment more like home and family.

Each individual brings unique gifts and talents to the relationship. They have new friends and companions in their lives-someone to learn and grow with through daily living. The support of the Family Living Community reinforces the opportunities to strengthen this relationship every day.

  • Short term respite (less than 30 days) is also available on an individual basis.

Please consider sharing your home and family with a person with a disability. A competitive stipend is paid to the provider. Support and training are provided by our Lifesharing Program Specialist. Your home and heart can help form a new and close relationship with a unique person, helping to fulfill their potential as well as your own.
