In our foster care program, individuals with intellectual and development disabilities live with families in the community. When we match an individual with a foster family we make sure to consider the needs, skills and personalities of individuals and potential families. Our goal is to create matches that lead to meaningful, loving and long-term relationships.
In some cases, individuals live with their own family as part of the foster care program. All foster care participants receive nursing services, assistance with community day program placement, behavioral help, and more.
Foster families provide individuals with countless opportunities to take part in everyday activities of family life, such as:
- Learning new skills
- Being comfortable in a group setting
- Learning household chores
- Discovering new hobbies and interests
- A chance to go on family vacations
- Improving independence
- Participating in the community
