SPECIAL FAMILIES FOR SPECIAL ADULTS

Through Baptist Children's Homes' (BCH) Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Ministry (I/DDM), the goal is to help each man and woman to thrive through our Special Families for Special Adults: Alternative Family Living (AFL) program. The in-home program is where an individual or family opens up their home as a safe, stable living environment for an intellectually/developmentally disabled adult.
 
In many ways, AFL is comparable to foster care except it is designed for providing a supportive home to a special needs adult instead of a child. We are actively looking for individuals and families to be AFL in-home providers.
 

Why is AFL important to the future of NC's Special Needs Adults?

AFL is becoming the preferred choice for providing them with care and community. As a result, there are greater avenues of support available for helping a special needs adult through AFL. It is why identifying special families for special adults is vital.
