Marcfirst’s Host Home program assists individuals with developmental disabilities of all ages in McLean County with finding a home designed to encourage independence in a family environment. Host Home Providers open their homes up to individuals supported, allowing the individuals to be immersed in both community and family life. Individuals are matched with a Host Home Provider based on a variety of likes and dislikes.
Host Home providers receive complex training in health and safety, implementation of service plans and person-centered services. This ensures a quality relationship of support and guidance. Marcfirst staff will visit all homes a minimum of 3 times a month, checking that the home is safe and individual needs are being met.
Host Home Providers are independent contractors who will be compensated for opening their home to an individual with a developmental disability. Providers make a difference in a person with a disability’s life from within their home, by helping individuals achieve their goals, create relationships within the community and live more independently!
