In Anod Care Services Inc. Adult Community Living also known as group homes; two or more adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities are carefully matched based on their needs, preferences and compatibility to live in our licensed, community-based homes. Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live in group homes with dedicated caregivers who we call “Coaches”. We use the term “Coach” because the people who care for the “Members” are more than just care providers, they are advocates, teachers, friends and family.

- 24-hour support in Group Homes
- Independent living skill development
- Opportunities to participate in community activities and Day Programs
- Advocacy services
- Family involvement and support
- Medication management
- Quality assurance
With an established track record of success, Anod Care Services Inc. Adult Community Living program has changed the lives of hundreds of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities—giving them new opportunities to learn, grow and achieve their personal life goals.

Specially Trained Staff
When someone is ready to move into one of our residences, we take the time to understand each clients interest as well as their unique strengths and abilities. Our homes are staffed with Direct Support Professionals, Licensed Medical Professionals, and other human services staff members who develop Individualized Service Plans (ISPs) to help each client progress toward their individual goals and thrive —whatever that means for them. We make sure that when clients move into our homes, they are completely suited for the unique needs, we do our utmost to match Members based on age, gender, religion, culture and level of care.
