Children's Community Homes

Who?

These homes serve only children who cannot remain in their natural, foster, or adoptive homes. Five homes in the state serve 33 children who have serious physical and medical disabilities; many have extremely challenging behaviors.

What?

In addition to having a place to live, children residing in these homes receive assistance with activities of daily living and individualized skill acquisition training designed to assist the child to move towards greater independence and to become a participating member of the community.

How?
