Sponsored residential providers offer person-centered care that engages children and adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities as part of a family. Our sponsored homes provide safe and supportive environments that encourage and protect individuals’ independence, dignity, and personal choice.
DePaul provides extensive training for our sponsored residential providers to prepare them to assist individuals who require varying levels of care. Each provider also receives support and oversight from a dedicated residential coordinator.
“My family doesn’t see disabilities as flaws. Our work with DePaul has taught them to see the good—and I think that’s pretty neat.” – Sheila Camacho, sponsored residential home provider
The process of becoming a sponsored residential provider is thorough and ensures that everyone involved can live their best lives: both the children and adults being served and prospective caregivers.
Opening your home to a child or an adult with a developmental and/or intellectual disability allows them to experience everyday life as an active part of your family and gives them the chance to find hope and belonging.
