A Natural Home Setting to Empower People
EP!C’s Host Home Program assists individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in finding a home designed to encourage independence in a family environment. We match adults of all ages to host families in the communities of their choice. Individuals are supported in a home setting allowing them to become immersed in both community and family life.
Host Home providers and individuals are matched according to likes and similar ideals. All host homes are visited 3 times monthly to ensure the homes are safe and the needs of individuals are met. Host Home providers receive training in health and safety, implementation of service plans and person-centered services. This ensures a quality relationship of support and guidance while providing the least restrictive environments possible. Providers are people who are looking to make a difference in the life of a person with disabilities from within their home.
Person-Centered Care with Host Homes
Through our Host Home program, participants are given a more individualized support system to help them reach their full potential. Our diligence has helped our program grow to become the largest Host Program in the state of Illinois. Our success has allowed us to grow and provide services to other areas such as Galesburg, Havana, and more.
