Host Home Provider – Always Taking Applications
A “Host Home” is a residential program model providing people with developmental disabilities a stable home environment. The program is designed to match/find a person to live with a family or individual without disabilities. The focus of this model is to get away from constantly changing staff situations. In essence, the person becomes a member of the family.
