The mission of the In-Home Support Program is to assist individuals and families in securing the necessary supports to live the life they desire within the community. These supports may include the individual living at home with his/her family or living in a home of his/her own. Staff partner with the individual and his/her family to help meet current needs at home, as well as teach the skills necessary to achieve the highest level of independence within the community. Staff will be there to act as a teacher of skills, a role model, an advocate, and a resource. Staff is trained on the specifics of each person, as well as the philosophies and quality standards expected of Penn-Mar employees.
