Adults with Disabilities

We work with adults with disabilities as they pursue independence, live with dignity, and engage as full members of their communities.

Adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities share many of the same hopes and dreams as those who aren’t — meaningful work, a comfortable and secure home, good friends, and a loving family. When provided with the right combination of supports, skills training, and education, all of these goals are within their reach.
HopeWell supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in two ways:

  1. We partner with adults who live on their own to support their independence and capacity to provide loving care to their children, if they are parenting.
  2. Our Shared Living program matches each individual with a local caregiver, who provides consistent learning opportunities in a safe, caring environment.

About Our Shared Living Program

No two adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are the same — which is why we get to know each individual’s strengths, needs, and interests to match them with a supportive caregiver. We want every living situation to truly feel like home.

Shared Living arrangements can be a key step toward increased independence and community inclusion. The program can help individuals master important self-care tasks, such as using public transportation, shopping, managing finances, and other critical aspects of daily living. HopeWell empowers each individual we support to inform and guide their own service plans, goal-setting, and decision-making.

Shared Living caregivers create safe home environments, assist with daily routines and activities, and receive supervision and training from experts at HopeWell.
