Choosing an appropriate living arrangement is an important decision and there are many different options available. Each is designed to meet a slightly different need, so one option may suit a person better than another one. All certified or licensed residential programs offer their residents the opportunity to participate in the community where they live.
Licensed residential homes are located in neighborhoods and can be a choice for either adults or children. Supported and independent living services are another option for adults. Certified foster family homes may be appropriate for some children. Family Home Agencies can provide similar home-like settings for adults as well. The goal for all residential services is to maintain the highest level of independence possible, while offering the person a safe and appropriate place to live.
