Home of Hope Group Homes provide residential living in a group setting of 6 to 10 people with developmental disabilities. The group home environment is ideal for an individual who is very independent, but requires some amount of assistance and support to meet their daily needs. Group Home residents have qualified for funding through the DDS (Developmental Disabilities Services) division of DHS (Department of Human Services).
