"To empower individuals to live independently in their communities by creating safe and affordable housing and enhancing it with the most appropriate high-level supportive services available." This is the mission of Mainstay Supportive Housing and Home Care, our service provider. They have been providing human service and housing programs all across Massachusetts including permanent supportive housing and person-centered home care support for more than four decades, with close to two decades of experience in the Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) program.
Mainstay Supportive Housing and Home Care provides support services at numerous privately-owned homes for young adults and adults with a range of developmental and intellectual disabilities. These homes, located in desirable residential neighborhoods, offer long-term, stable, supportive living environments for residents, who typically have autism spectrum disorders, and a range of developmental and intellectual disabilities. Each resident has their own private room, with a shared bath and ample common space, including fully equipped kitchen and laundry.
Each home is staffed by a Residence Manager and has a separate two bedroom apartment for live in staff who are on site during the overnight hours.
Staff are educated to work with individuals with special needs, individually and in groups. Our model is a Collaborative Living Support program that combines family and staff support. Our philosophy is to encourage and support the highest level of independence for residents – in home settings in which every resident lives their best possible life.
