Will the group home be located in close proximity to the school / day program / place of employment?
We encourage individuals to choose day programs and related activities that are within a reasonable proximity to the home. However, these distances may vary. We do not consider proximity to be the primary determining factor in placing individuals in day programs. Instead, we encourage family members and individuals to choose day programs and related activities that are best suited to their interests and overall functioning levels, as many day programs specialize in meeting different types of needs. Day program is a choice, and sometimes it’s not the most convenient choice…but should always be the best choice.
