Our 24/7 residential group homes provide people with disabilities support, independence, and a built-in community, all at the same time.

Residential communities for people with developmental disabilities.

AbleLight has been providing residential housing support for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities since the day we first opened our doors in 1904. That’s because having a safe and loving home is a necessary foundation in order to thrive.

People with disabilities are as unique and varied as anyone else, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to their support. At AbleLight, we empower people with disabilities in all aspects of their lives, and in group homes that includes everything from the way they decorate their room to how they spend their time and more.

Not only does living in a group home allow for socialization and friendships within the home, but we’re committed to ensuring people with disabilities are fully included in their communities. Whether it’s movie night at home, a trip to the museum, or volunteering for a local organization, we’re always looking for ways to bring people with disabilities together, both with each other and with the larger community.

A group home is a residential housing facility, operated by caregivers within a local community for people with developmental disabilities. These homes are found in local communities and provide personalized care for many people at the same time, while also creating opportunities for both independence and a sense of community for residents.

AbleLight’s group homes serve as small communities, so that people with developmental disabilities can find independence, get the support they need, and form enriching friendships with their caregivers and the other people they live with.

In addition, our caregivers, also known as Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), are committed to enriching the lives of the residents through activities such as gardening, cooking, and crafts, providing guidance, coaching and support for daily tasks, and assisting them in reaching their own personal goals. Many of our caregivers say that the people they support are like family to them.
