The idea behind Our House came from the concern shared by many parents and caregivers of individuals with disabilities of what happens to their loved ones after high school. The seeming abyss is what the founders were hoping to contend with, by having a tangible location for day program and contracting with school district transition programs to ease the journey from high school to adult services.
From this inception, Our House expanded to provide day habilitation through Medicaid waivers and continued its growth in adding residential services. Throughout the development of the organization individuals and relationships have always been at the core. The evolution has been continuous, with the organization constantly striving to be the best version of itself.
Our House continues to be a collaboration of many wonderful supports that strives to give people the opportunity to grow and express themselves as the unique individuals they are. The focus is to create an atmosphere of community while offering services that ensure safety, responsibility, and independence. Our House centers around cultivating personal growth with daily living skills, social interaction, and community partnership.
