We provide a full continuum of residential options for people with disabilities to live in a safe and healthy environment. Our goal is for people to achieve the highest level of independence at home and in the community. Our interdisciplinary teams work closely with family members and guardians and we encourage involvement in all aspects of their loved ones lives.
Adult Developmental Vocational Programs (ADVP)
ADVPâs are day programs designed to assist adults with intellectual and /or developmental disabilities to prepare to live as independently as possible. Our ADVPâs provide opportunities for enjoyment of leisure activities, the development of community living skills, vocational adjustment, work activity training, and personal skill development.
Alternative Family Living (AFL)
RHA provides services through AFL homes for people with intellectual, developmental, and behavioral challenges. The goal is to help each person achieve the highest level of independence through person-centered plans and habilitative daily living supports.

Group Homes I/DD/Waiver State-Funded
Our group homes and residential centers provide services to children and adults with intellectual, physical and developmental disabilities. We work together with persons supported and their families to develop a person-centered plan designed to increase each personâs strengths and to help them better engage with their communities and friends.
Intermediate Care Facility (ICF/IDD)
ThisÂ residential setting is the most structured level of support offered by RHA, with staff on duty around the clock.Â TheseÂ settings coordinateÂ medical and habilitative services and provide trainingÂ thatÂ enablesÂ peopleÂ with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to attain their highest level of independence possible.Â Â RHA operates ICF homes for both children and adults.
For some people, only minimal support is required; this option allows these individuals to live independently inÂ their ownÂ house or apartment with support available as needed.Â This residential alternative reflects the flexibility of RHA support services.
