Adult & Child
An ADH provider opens their home to provide a foster home setting to an adult or adults (18 and older) in need. ADH providers can support up to three adults in their home at one time. All adults placed in ADHs are receiving services through DES/DDD and have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. Developmental Disabilities can include, but are not limited to Cognitive Disability, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy and Autism. Adults placed in an ADH are usually long-term placements.
A CDH provider opens their home to provide a foster home setting to a child or children (0-17 years of age) in need. CDH providers can support up to three children in their home at one time. Most children placed in CDHs are receiving services through DES/DDD and have been diagnosed with a developmental disability. Developmental Disabilities can include, but are not limited to Cognitive Disability, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy and Autism. Children placed in CDHs can be temporary or long term, depending on the case plan of the child. As a CDH provider you are expected to follow and support the case plan of the child or children placed in your home.

Gwen's Advance Care's Role
A Gwen’s Advance Care Support Coordinator has two functions; to be a “regulator” and “supporter.” Our contracts with providers ensure they are maintaining all licensing and recordkeeping requirements. We coordinate your necessary ongoing training and yearly renewal process. We will advocate for both the provider and the client (s) they serve by attending necessary meetings and by assisting in resolving problems. Home visits will take place a minimum of once per month.
The decision to become a licensed Developmental Home provider should be carefully thought out. Please take some time to consider the impact that caring for another individual in your home will have. If becoming a Developmental Home provider seems too much of a commitment at this time, please consider other positive ways to make an impact on the lives of individuals with disabilities.
Please call Gwen’s Advance Care at (602) 595-5707, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to state your desire to begin the licensing process.
Thank you for taking an interest in our members and making them a part of your family!
