Adult Family Homes
Moving out of your parents’ house is a huge milestone—for everyone! When adults with disabilities reach this natural progression in life, we want to help make the transition as smooth as possible by providing Adult Family Homes.
Adult Family Homes (AFH) are designed for adults who wish to live more independently, but need support to do so. These residences give individuals a newfound freedom to explore their community, develop daily living skills, and grow their social circle while still ensuring that they have the personal care they need. An AFH can be a permanent home for our clients, or it can be a stepping stone to a future living arrangement that provides even greater independence, such as having their own apartment.
A Community for Growth: Benefits of Group Homes for Adults with Disabilities
Our Adult Family Homes serve individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Here, they are able to enjoy living independently, but don’t have to do it alone. Proper care is available around-the-clock, to include coordinating appointments, scheduling transportation, helping them take the appropriate medication, and other personal needs. Our clients also have the pleasure of living alongside three peers, so they have built-in support from their circle of friends!
Covey clients aren’t the only ones benefiting from these homes. Families learn how to “let go” of their loved one and support their independence. Once a family member is no longer a full-time caregiver, they have an opportunity to recharge and pursue new experiences with peace of mind that their loved one is in great care.
Adult Family Homes allow the community around us to foster an appreciation for differences. While they appear similar to any other house in the neighborhood, they are fitted with reasonable accommodations that may include wheelchair-accessible entrances, wider doorways, raised electrical outlets, and lower kitchen surfaces. AFHs help the community around them cultivate a more inclusive mindset and better understand the talents and gifts our clients have to offer.
Above all else, we want to foster growth in individuals with disabilities, and independence goes hand-in-hand with personal development. Therefore, we have plans for opening four Adult Family Homes in the near future! Our goal is for two homes to be move-in ready by the end of 2022, and have the other two homes up and running by early 2024.
