Certified Family Homes - Providers Page

Certified Family Homes (CFH) provide a safe, family-style living environment for adults who need some assistance with the activities of daily living, but do not require a more restrictive institutional setting. Usually there are one or two adult residents in a CFH.  Each resident has a tailored care plan designed to meet their individual needs and to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in community activities.  The CFH is operated by a provider who has received the appropriate training and demonstrated the knowledge and experience to provide safe and effective services to the residents.  There are over 2,400 Certified Family Homes in communities across the state.
