Our residential team focuses on developing the independence of each person we support in a variety of residential settings. We work with the entire family to determine a vision for the future, develop a meaningful plan, and support emotional well-being. We help navigate the practical issues surrounding a successful transition. Our family-style culture promotes respect, dignity, self-determination, and independence.
Each person we support has a carefully developed Individual Plan (IP). The IP team typically consists of the person, their family, support staff, case manager, and other significant people. We consider all areas of life, including building/supporting a social life, medical, self-help, cooking, banking, transportation, personal care, and recreation.
Types of residences:
Individual Home Supports – provide support to a person with I/DD in their apartment or family home. Supports are individualized to meet the needs of the person to live as independently as possible, and/or to help a family maintain their loved one at home.
Community Companion Homes (CCH) – are where individuals reside in a community member’s home with supports from Harc. These are caring families with whom the person with I/DD is matched based on the unique needs of both the family and the individual. Each family is licensed to ensure quality and safety.
Community Living Arrangement (CLA) – is a group of four to six people living in a home with a warm and supportive environment. CLAs are typically staffed 24-hours a day to ensure that the support enhances each person’s life, including advocating when necessary. The people who live in a CLA are active members of the community and participate in local social events.
Continuous Residential Supports (CRS) – are situations where individuals and their families pool their resources to create a shared home for three or fewer people. This arrangement offers a variety of flexible supports tailored to the people who live together.
