Become a Mentor
By becoming a host home provider, also known as a Mentor, you can make a difference in the life of an individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Quality of Care Standards
These quality standards embody our mission by focusing on the individual, establishing criteria for service delivery, clarifying expectations for those receiving and providing services, identifying potential outcomes and serving as a guide for day-to-day decision-making.
The Highest Quality of Service
Every individual receiving services, regardless of age, complexity of condition, service type, or setting in which the services are provided, can expect:
Person-Centered Orientation in Planning and Service Delivery: Services that reflect the individual’s preferences, goals and unique needs and that maximize opportunities for success
Integration of Health Care Services: Comprehensive mental and physical health and dental care necessary to maintain optimal health
Coordination of Services: Assistance in coordinating services and establishing collaborations to optimize the ability to prosper in the community
Personal Safety: Safety and security in home and community
