Provider Families are compassionate people who actually care about the well-being of an individual they have welcomed into their home.  Like foster parenting, it is a 24/7 job.  These families help people under their care identify life goals by developing and following the consumer’s annual service plan (ISP).  Provider Families teach responsibility and skills that will enhance the individual’s ability to connect with others.   They also include the individual living with them in family activities and home tasks, as it benefits their personal growth. Provider Families are INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS.  They are their own boss and run their homes the way they choose, as long as they are in compliance with DMH and Medicaid standards, rules, and regulations.
