Project Home is a program based on an Adult Foster Family Model of Care . It provides a family-like living arrangement in the community for adults with developmental or physical disabilities, with mental illness, or for elderly individuals that need assistance. The program provides housing to individuals who are unable to live safely in the community on their own, and offers a home-like and less costly alternative to nursing homes, psychiatric hospitals and other institutional settings.
There are two primary features in this program:
- Providers of Project Home services complete a certification process to ensure the suitability of the provider and the quality of the home in terms of health and safety, and,
- Case management services are provided to each project home resident by the local Department of Social Services to ensure that the resident receives needed supportive services.
For more information about Project Home, contact your local Department of Social Services and ask for the Project Home Program or visit the website at http://www.dhr.state.md.us/oas/projhome.php.
