As Dorothy says, “There’s no place like home.” Why is home such a special place? It provides us with safety, security and shelter from the elements. It is where we rest and recharge. It’s the place where we keep all our stuff. Our clothes are there; maybe a TV, books and other things we use to entertain ourselves. It’s where we eat and nourish ourselves. It’s the platform from which we achieve healthier lives, better educational outcomes and employment opportunities. At the end of the day, though, home is special because of the people there. Whether that is our family, our neighbors or the larger community around us. The people in our lives and our relationships with them enrich and strengthen our home, making it the special place that it is.

The Mainstream program serves ALL disabled families, regardless of the type of disability. There is no preference provided to families with specific types of disabilities and the program does NOT require that applicants be homeless. Read more
