Treasure House will serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) that are no longer receiving federally mandated educational services. Potential Treasure House residents are young adults with IDD, who seek to build productive, meaningful and fulfilling lives in a unique residential setting. Programming reflects Treasure House’s dedication to fostering independence, a sense of community, and personal fulfillment.

- Is comfortable with a dynamic schedule, including attending center- and community-based events
- Has an alternate residence for holidays or sudden and long-term illness

Treasure House is not appropriate for all individuals
Treasure House is not appropriate for individuals who have a psychiatric and/or serious emotional disturbance that impacts behavior, have serious medical conditions that require daily or weekly monitoring or intervention, and/or require 24-hour supervision.
Treasure House is a community-based, structured program with 24/7 on-site support. Individual safety and dignity will be our priority, but residents will be working and living in the community and allowed to make decisions that affect all aspects of their lives, all of which creates a level of risk inherent to this philosophy and approach.
Treasure House is projected to open early 2018.
If you are an individual or family member who meets the above criterion and are interested in the prospect of residing at Treasure House, please complete our Pre-Application Inquiry, the first step in our Application for Admissions Process. (Note: This does not guarantee a spot at Treasure House.) This step in the process allows our team to assess whether an individual meets the minimum requirements for admission. It also allows applicants and their families to self-assess the appropriateness of this program.
Our goal is to offer affordable units compared to similar, privately-owned and -operated residential communities. Residents’ monthly expense (to include rent, board, and 24-hour supervision) is projected to be between $2500-$3350. Please stay tuned to our “What’s New” page for more information about available funding that may provide financial assistance to your family.
