Resources

At Specialized Housing, our resources are people:

A professional development team with years of experience working with families, working with adults with developmental challenges, working with cities and towns to create housing that works.

A Management team that includes senior administrative staff and tradespeople providing the ongoing maintenance and the building emergency calls that are sometimes necessary.

Residents who are committed to each other, to living independently, to contributing to their community through work, community activities and service.

Families who work cooperatively with other families. Families who are supportive of their family members who live in an SHI household. Families who work as a team with staff to promote independence and a full rich life for their family member.

Professional clinical staff who supervise the staff of each living arrangement, provide support to residents and their families and liaison to the wider community.

A dedicated cadre of on-site staff committed to supporting the growth and independence of the residents. Very low staff turnover rate – some staff have worked for Specialized Housing for more that 25 years.

Relationships with schools, community organizations and professionals who provide referrals and a variety of community-based support services. For links to some of these professionals and services, click the following:
