Our Residential Homes include 20 houses in the greater Springfield/Westfield and Holyoke/Chicopee areas where individuals with developmental challenges live in groups with 24-hour support provided by appropriately trained staff. Home-sharing and “less than 24-hour transitional programming” are also offered through this program.
Program supports are provided so that developmentally disabled individuals can develop emotionally, cognitively, culturally, and socially to their maximum potential. Emphasis is placed on each person’s needs, wants, and abilities with the priorities of ensuring safety and accessing good health care services.
A variety of leisure activities, which can include family and friends, are accomplished with the help of dedicated staff and a registered nurse/health care coordinator. Activities are planned both on an individual basis and in groups settings. Cooking classes, exercise classes, and varied recreational opportunities are offered. Additionally, we assist with transportation for community activities and employment opportunities.
