A Family Home Agency, working with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Leveraging Equal Access Program (LEAP) provides housing and customized supports to individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities and their families. The largest component of our organization is the Adult Family Home Agency (AFHA).
What exactly does LEAP do?
As an AFHA, we provide a family-home environment with stability, support, tolerance and most of all compassion for the individuals we serve. We offer a home base from which our clients can thrive as individuals and maintain the level of independence they desire. Our experienced staff are in constant pursuit of community opportunities for the individuals we serve. The individuals we serve are assisted through a matching process with a home provider. The consumer and home providers decide mutually on the match. If they feel it is a good fit, we support them both in keeping the relationship healthy and promoting independence. Our home providers are highly trained and willing to open up their homes and hearts. to a population too often ignored and deserving of our respect.
LEAP is a strengths based, evidence driven program. We have formed national and local community partnerships promoting equal rights and advocacy at every level of service. Our professional’s collective knowledge and experience serving individuals with disabilities spans generations and clearly displays a record of unparalleled commitment and excellence. We collect and synthesize data constantly, allowing our multidisciplinary team to better coordinate systems of care for our consumer's benefit. Accessing employment, medical care, mediating financial conflict and behavioral health assistance are just a few of the areas LEAP can provide additional supports.
The culmination of our experience and expertise helps to identify and exhibit the strength and potential in the individuals we serve. We aim to highlight their many contributions to our world.
