Residential Host Home (RHH) services are support services in a caring environment that are provided for people with disabilities helping all aspects of a person’s life which may include care planning, a comprehensive individualized plan, day programs, transportation, and more.  Clients are housed in a secure setting where they experience feeling safe and loved.

The Host Home program provides housing and care for people with disabilities, short or long term, in a safe, secure, and loving setting in which a trained individual with CPR and QMAP qualifications cares for the individual following state and local policies.
