Community & Medicaid Services

Photo of man sitting on front porchIndividuals with DD who can no longer live with their families receive the assistance they need to find new homes with the help of the county board of DD's Community & Medicaid Services. Often, their parents are elderly or in poor health and simply can not care for them any longer.  

We support a range of options for people to live in the least restrictive environment. These include supported living, community group homes, foster care, home and community-based waivers and various resources that allow individuals to continue to live in their family's home.  

Our community group homes serve residents in 39 different communities, and nearly 1,600 individuals live in homes of their own choosing through supported living and community waivers. The development and operation of community living options is a unique public-private venture among the county board of DD, North Coast Community Homes, a nonprofit housing development and management corporation, and more than two dozen community agencies that provide staffing and handle day-to-day operations.
