Home Life has several residential programs each operated by a separate Program Manager and overseen by a Program Director. Eight group homes, a Supported Living program and our VOC/ATE program serve approximately 60 plus people with disabilities in Benton County. Each program promotes independent living skills and community integration. Home Life is a second family to many of the clients, therefore, we strive to serve our clients through each stage of life. Our programs continue to evolve and change to meet the needs of the new generation as well as our aging population.

Supported Living & In Home Services

Supported Living & Comprehensive In Home Supports

Home Life has three Supported Living programs and Comprehensive In Home Supports. Because we continue to grow with new referrals, we have split the main program into Supported Living A & B. Our main programs serve individuals in the community, who live in their own homes or with peer roommates.   The Suported Living Plus program was created in 2013 to support individuals living in their own homes or family homes, who may need a little extra support to be independent.   In 2016, we opened our doors to include Comprehensive In Home Supports. The program works with individuals to identify a provider through our agency, while they may also maintain another provider such as a Personal Support Worker.
