We provide a full continuum of residential options for people with disabilities to live in a safe and healthy environment in North Carolina. 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 one’s lives.
Adult Developmental Vocational Programs (ADVP)
ADVP’s are day programs designed to assist adults with intellectual and /or developmental disabilities to prepare to live as independently as possible. Our ADVP’s 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.
Behavioral Health Residential Services
Our Behavioral Health Residential programs, such as the Mary Benson House in Asheville, provide housing, treatment, and support to people with behavioral health needs. The Mary Benson House (MBH) is a residential substance use disorder treatment center for pregnant and parenting women, offering recovery and healing to mothers and mothers-to-be who are dedicated to overcoming substance use and providing a safe, stable and loving environment for their children.

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 person’s strengths and to help them better engage with their communities and friends.
Intermediate Care Facility (ICF/IDD)
This residential setting is the most structured level of support offered by RHA, with staff on duty around the clock. These settings coordinate medical and habilitative services and provide training that enables people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities to attain their highest level of independence possible. 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 in their own house or apartment with support available as needed. This residential alternative reflects the flexibility of RHA support services.
