HOMES

Men, women and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities can also live in 24-hour supervised homes throughout Allegheny and Washington communities. This program gives each individual the opportunity to become as independent as possible. In a home-like environment, clients are able to receive the attention and supervision needed to cook, clean, shop and participate fully in the operation of their homes. Individuals learn self-care, mobility, personal and social development, communication and language and money management skills.
Arc Human Services provides a community residential rehabilitation program which provides a stable and supportive setting for persons with serious mental illness. Residents live in a home-like setting where they receive counseling and rehabilitation appropriate to their individual levels of function, enabling them to progress at their own pace from the transitional living situation to living independently in the community. Referrals are accepted from the Base Service Units and authorized by the County. AHS has two licensed homes in Washington as well as Specialized Housing – a program to address and meet the unique needs of those living with mental illness – in Butler and Beaver Counties.
