Adult Host Home Program

Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities may find it challenging to live at home with their families or lack the skillset to live independently. 

By operating a developmental home, you can support an adult with intellectual and developmental impairments in their growth and well-being. 

What is a Host Home Program?

Host home programs, also known as Developmental Homes, are opportunities for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities to have a warm and loving environment to call home.    

Many adults with developmental or intellectual disabilities do not have the necessary skill set to live independently, that is where a Host Home Program comes into the picture. 

Host Home providers and programs offer adults support and care by helping them achieve goals and strive for more as outlined by their individual care plan.

Host Home Providers must have a compassionate and selfless mindset when opening their homes to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Below are the General Qualifications as outlined by the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDD).

Host Home Providers

"Being an Adult Developmental Home provider is a great opportunity to connect with individuals who might not have a lot of positive influence in their world. Partnering with those individuals to provide new opportunities and experiences that may have been missed out on in their lives rewards both providers and members alike. "
