Individualized Home
Supports

As a non-licensed residential option; the IHS model offers less than 24-hour support to individuals with developmental disabilities. This provides an opportunity for independent living in a less restrictive residential setting. The focus of this program is to increase independence at home and in the community. Also, in-home family supports are designed to assist individuals living at home with their families. Services such as community outings, doctor’s appointments, and recreational activities are offered to the families.
