Its largest focus area, People Inc. operates more than 100 group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities across eight counties in Western New York. Residents can choose a variety of arrangements and locations for community living and enjoy a home-like setting that is safe and comfortable. Residential programs offer a variety of opportunities for integrated community living, provide 24-hour (or as needed) supervision, and are designed to meet the individual needs and abilities of its residents. Programs range from Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) for people who require intense support, to group homes which encourage and enhance independent daily living skills. Additional residential programs include family care in which families open their home to individuals with developmental disabilities; and supportive apartments designed for individuals who are more independent yet require some guidance on a regular basis. In addition to more traditional group homes and supportive apartments, innovative “person-centered” housing is being developed. Individuals with a developmental disability are eligible.
