Family Home Program

The purpose of the Family Home Program is to match and place adults with an intellectual disability into carefully selected private homes. The program seeks to create an environment that is both unrestrictive and flexible for all people involved. It is built on a foundation of traditional family values and will reflect the love, caring and participation that is inherent in any well-functioning family. Individuals must reside in Northumberland County.
