The primary programs of HCO include residential care in small settings (4-6 person) for adults with disabilities who need a 24-hour plan of support. HCO manages a 24-unit apartment complex that is funded by HUD and includes subsidized rental assistance. The agency also has programs to serve people who live semi-independently. All services are designed to build skills and allow these individuals to maintain both independence and self-sufficiency.
Additionally, HCO works with children and adults that continue to live at home with family caretakers. These programs augment the care of the family and are designed to provide additional training in skill development to maximize growth and independence. In-home services are also available to give family caretakers a break by providing respite care services. The agency has two resource homes that are designed to teach skills and provide care to individuals when away from home and when not engaged in community activities. The agency also has programming to provide intensive intervention for children with autism, helping the child acquire language and social skills to improve their abilities to interact and acquire greater independence.
