Home Life is a private, non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization providing safe, integrated, community living services for the purpose of enhancing the quality of life for persons with developmental disabilities.
Home Life (formerly Housing for the Handicapped) began in Corvallis, Oregon in November 1972, when family members of people with developmental disabilities wanted alternative opportunities that would provide for challenge and growth and ultimately lead to more independent living. The idea was to create a ’home-like’ environment, avoiding placement in the state institution, Fairview Training Center.
Choices for all. Barriers for none.
Home Life Believes that people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities:
Should be treated with dignity and respect, and should be involved in decision making that effects their lives.
Should be enouraged to live as independently as possible within a safe, healthy environment that fosters growth.
Have many capabilities, are valuable, and contribute to the community.
