Dare Family Services provides specialized adult foster care for adults with developmental disabilities. This program provides individuals with the opportunity to reside in a family’s home. We focus on providing professional services in a self-growth environment that fosters the learning and development of independent living skills. We encourage individuals, referred to Dare by the Department of Developmental Services, in their efforts to master basic everyday self care tasks such as using public transportation, shopping, managing finances, doing house work and maintaining personal hygiene.
Our specialized adult foster care providers offer a supportive living arrangement for the individual placed in their home. They assure and protect the person’s human rights and protect the person from abuse and/or neglect. They also ensure that the individuals receive routine medical and dental care according to their service plan. Most of all, they provide a warm and loving environment focused on understanding all of the individual’s needs.
Dare Family Services provides ongoing case management to develop service plans and treatment goals that are in the individual’s best interests. We also provide the shared living home care provider with supportive supervision and trainings to help them address challenges and any ongoing difficult situations as they may arise.
