Homes for Vulnerable Adults

The purpose of the Certified Family Home program in Idaho is to provide alternative living arrangements for vulnerable adults who cannot live on their own, allowing them to remain in normal family-styled living environments within their communities, instead of more restrictive and expensive institutional care settings. Certified family homes are operated by care providers who can meet the mental, emotional and physical conditions of the vulnerable adults who live in their homes. Visit the Certified Family Homes webpage to learn more.
