Host Home services
Many adults with developmental disabilities need a supportive, family environment, and we have many caring and competent Host Home Providers waiting. By contracting with both private individuals and families alike, Support, Inc. places adults with developmental disabilities into safe and nurturing homes.

Support, Inc. evaluates the results of all the services that we provide. Our system contains effectiveness and efficiency measures aimed at complete customer satisfaction. Your satisfaction is our ultimate goal.
In addition to Host Homes, we also accommodate individuals who may desire other types of residential services. To that end, we have an Apartment Program for individuals who want a more independent life-style. For families who wish to maintain their family members in their own home we provide services under the Family Caregiver Act. Finally, we provide residential support under the Companion Model.
Our Host Home Model
Support, Inc. has over 100 host homes in Denver and Northern Colorado. We offer a variety of host home settings to our customers. Each of these settings is unique so that you can find a home that matches your lifestyle. Whether you wish to live with a single provider or with an entire family with children, we will find your ideal home.
In the traditional Host Home model, the client resides in the home of the provider. You will have your own bedroom but share the common areas of the home with other members of the household.
The Host Home Provider is charged with providing a safe, loving environment for you. They are responsible for day to day care including providing meals, medication administration, arranging for medical care and treatment, and to meet other specific needs you might have.
Support, Inc. ensures that all Host Home Providers and adequately trained and skilled in areas of general care, Medication Certification, First Aid and CPR, positive behavior supports, Consumer Rights, etc. Our Residential Coordinators monitor all of our host homes carefully to ensure your safety, that all your needs are met and that you are receiving the highest level of care.
At Support, Inc., helping you achieve the highest quality of life is of the utmost importance to us. Thus, we work with your Host Home Provider, and other care providers to ensure that you are learning new skills which contribute to independence and personal growth. This could include safety and safety awareness skills, money management, cooking skills, hygiene skills and/or other activities of daily living.

OUR RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS
The most important part of all of this? You.
We’re committed to providing the very best residential services and experiences for our clients possible – no matter what their needs and requirements may be. And because we want to ensure the individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities truly becomes a member of their Host Home family, we provide a thorough and rigorous matching process that is second to none.
We interview the client, as well as potential Host Home providers, about lifestyle habits and interests using a list of 20 different preferences that have been determined to be key concerns. These include areas such as:
- Personal needs
- Social environments
- Likes, dislikes and pet peeves
Ideal Customer Profile
The matching process begins after we determine the wants and needs of the person with disabilities. The potential Host Home provider receives an Ideal Consumer Profile in which they outline what meets their personality, preferences and lifestyle. Once the paperwork is received, the placement team will complete a home study.
When selecting a family, we consider ethnicity, religion, marital status, children in the home, employment status, financial stability, compatible personalities and openness to ongoing contact with family.
We will contact the Host Home provider after a match has been made. Our placement team will set up opportunities for both parties to meet and get to know a little bit about each other. The placement team will discuss the compatibility of both parties after this meeting and then determine if there is a match.
