The Familyhome program matches adults with a developmental disability with a family looking to open their home and share their family life.
The Familyhome Program provides a safe, healthy and respectful home to individuals with developmental disabilities.
Each client of our Familyhome program is matched with a compatible family. This match is the cornerstone of the Familyhome program.
Our definition of family is broad — it could be a couple with children, a single person, or empty nesters. The screening of families is a thoughtful process. The first requirement is a family's desire to welcome someone to live in their home. VON complete a screening process that includes a criminal reference check and a personal interview.
When a compatible match is found, a gradual transition occurs until the person moves in and begins to become part of the family.
