OPTIONS operates 4 community homes. Each home provides a nurturing and supportive atmosphere for six individuals with disabilities to call home. Two of the homes are for women and two are for men.
The homes provide an opportunity for people with complex needs to live with peers in their communities, hands on assistance with daily livings activities, transportation to all activities or appointments, nursing oversight and comprehensive person-centered services.
The locations were chosen in order to maximize access to the community and provide a unique neighborhood experience for residents. Each home is staffed around the clock to ensure the care and safety needs of residents are met.
All 4 community homes have successfully been operating operated for over 30 years.
