Open Your Home and Your Heart

Companion Services / Adult Foster Care / Host Home

When you open your home to an individual with a disability, you are providing them with something of incomparable value that they deeply need – a home.

Companion Services / Adult Foster Care / Host home is the most natural setting in which an individual with intellectual or developmental disabilities can live. 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.

Over the years people that have been labeled as different have been placed into institutions that rob them of a basic need for all humans a family setting. This was not due to malice from anyone, but rather the option has not always been available. Fortunately, some states have identified this need and now you can help by providing a person the closest thing to a natural family home.

The individuals we serve in our program have a wide range of intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities.
