Certified Family Home Overview
A Certified Family Home provides a safe, family-style living environment for adults with developmental disabilities who need some assistance with daily living activities. The Certified Family Home is operated by a provider who has been certified by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and demonstrates the knowledge and experience to provide a safe and effective service to the resident(s).
Community Partnerships of Idaho has been contracted by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare to provide Program Coordination for this program. Our Program Coordinators offer a person-centered approach to assist the Certified Family Home Provider in developing implementation plans designed to meet the individual resident's needs. Program Coordinators develop written programs for the Provider to put into place in the home and offer one-on-one support to help with these programs and to enhance independent living skills for the resident.
The first step in qualifying as a Certified Family Home is completing an application with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
