New Jersey MENTOR – Host Homes for Adults with Disabilities
We believe every individual has the right to live well, no matter what challenges they face. In our host home program, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live in private family homes with their host home providers. Individuals become part of the family and get the caring support they need to live their best lives.
For some people, that may mean making friends or finding a job they love. Others may want to build independent living skills and find new hobbies. An individual’s host home provider helps them build the skills they need to reach their goals in a loving, supportive home where they can grow and thrive.
Host Home Services for Individuals with Mental Health Diagnoses
Our caring host home providers offer warm, welcoming homes for people with a wide range of needs, including mental health diagnoses. With the support of their caregiver, individuals with mental health needs develop the skills and independence to live well.
New Jersey MENTOR is a part of the Sevita family. Sevita is a leading provider of home and community-based specialty health care.
We recognize that everyone is different — and everyone needs different supports to thrive. That’s why each person we serve in our host home program has a support plan designed especially for them. Depending on each person’s needs, goals, and preferences, supports include:
Family and community activities
Independent living skill development, such as personal care, making meals and managing money
Support with daily living activities
Because of the support they get from their host home providers, adults in our program can choose from many opportunities to grow and live their best lives. Depending on their interests and goals, these may include socializing with family and friends, discovering new hobbies, and finding work they enjoy in the community.
