Community Companion Home (CCH) Program at Harc
Harc’s Community Companion Homes (CCH) offer families of different cultures and backgrounds the opportunity to welcome a person with I/DD into their homes. It requires a licensing process through the State of Connecticut.
A CCH licensee offers the person with I/DD a safe and nurturing home that provides needed supports, personal attention, and a positive lifestyle while maintaining the important family relationships in their lives. The individuals are encouraged to participate in family events and community outings. They are supported to work toward their personal goals.
An individualized support plan is created based on the person’s wishes and dreams for their future, as well as their challenges, strengths, and skills. Monthly check-in visits are made to a CCH home by a Harc CCH Coordinator.
The most rewarding part of becoming a CCH licensee is the satisfaction that comes from helping a person build a great life as well as being a part of a team with the same mission.
CCH families have access to Harc’s 24-hour on-call system, respite, and recreational activities that support a well-rounded life for the person and the CCH.
