DDCN believes that home is where a happy life begins. We break from industry standards with our commitment to matching individuals to compatible housemates, ensuring privacy by requiring separate bedrooms for all individuals not related to one another, ensuring a typical home-like environment by limiting group homes to no more than three individuals and 24 hour staffing is provided. DDCN group homes are located in single-family neighborhoods, close to services such as bus lines, shopping, fitness centers, library, and potential employers. We provided Habilitation through skilled and behavior programs. Our individuals are assisted in learning daily living skills, and are socially active in the community through regular outings.
