Access to resources such as food, clothing, utilities, and housing is essential for individuals with autism and their families to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Our resource library offers information on centers that can help with issues such as Family Violence Prevention & Assistance, General Assistance, Legal Assistance, Medical & Prescription Assistance, Grants & Funding, and Housing & Shelter. We strive to provide information that can support families in meeting their basic needs and achieving greater independence.

This is a chance to help make a difference by opening your home to an individual with a developmental disability.

A Host Home Provider offers a community-based living alternative where individuals or families open their homes to people with developmental disabilities who qualify for services. Teaching, assisting in personal and professional growth, and providing recreation opportunities are additional responsibilities of becoming a home provider. Pay is based on the supported person’s level of need. Community Options will provide training.

A Host Home is more than just another housing option. The home’s primary caregiver provides training, assistance, and supervision. Support can range from community integration to daily living skills, such as personal hygiene, food preparation, and instruction on social skills and problem solving.

MRDC provides in-home and family support services to children and adults with IDD who choose to remain in their own homes. Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) and other Medicaid waiver programs ensure each individual's welfare in the community and help to prevent or delay people from being placed into institutions.

A team of professionals and family members develop a plan with the individual seeking services to identify the goals and services that a person needs to continue to live in their own home. In this program, MRDC employs paid staff (PAS/HAB) who visit an individual’s home according to the individual’s treatment plan to provide services.

Typically, these services are rendered for a few hours each week.
