Supportive Apartments
The Supportive Apartment services model is an alternative to traditional adult foster care that allows flexibility to provide services tailored to the person. These services are designed to adapt to the increasing or decreasing needs of people who live in their own apartments. Services available include 24-hour emergency staff response with technology and supplemental support in areas including: budgeting, menu planning, grocery shopping, assistance with medical appointments, and additional areas as identified. Supported Apartment services are located throughout the metropolitan and greater MN area.

We hold a monthly meet and greet opportunity at one of our apartment locations for potential individuals to learn more about the people already living in this service option, to meet potential roommates and learn more about this alternative and if it might be a good fit for him or her.

Our upcoming meet and greets are:

July 15 – Cedarwood 4-6pm
August 12 – Mill Pond 3-5pm

In addition the monthly meet and greets, each apartment location has a monthly schedule of activities. Individuals are invited to participate in the various activities which gives them the opportunity to get out into the community, explore other apartments, meet new people and mingle in the community. Activities include bowling, coffee club, BBQs, game night, trips to the mall, trips to the zoo, picnics and many more.

Responder Service
Responder Services are a cost effective, custom set of supports offering you independence, and the support you need while utilizing the latest technology where you wish to live. Supports are tailored to your needs and are flexible enough to change with you.
