GROUP HOMES, ICFs/DD
A positive, comfortable environment is what makes a house a home. In our homes, individuals become active, decisive participants in small households of four to eight people. They benefit from the 24-hour support our compassionate staff provides in each of our 21 homes, located in residential neighborhoods throughout Cuyahoga County. Eighteen houses are certified as Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs/DD), meeting the federal requirements and certified by the Department of Health (Medicaid). Three homes are funded through waivers. All homes are licensed by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD).
Everyone has different needs. Some of our individuals need drop in support; some require 24-hour assistance. Our Supported Living services focus on each individual’s specific necessities and preferences. Individuals choose where to live and assert responsibility by paying their living expenses. The result is a more informal, natural support system.
Living with a caring and nurturing host family is another option we offer individuals. Host families receive thorough training, allowing them to support up to three individuals in each home. Host homes are funded through the waiver program.
