"I focus less on what I can't do with my disability and more on what I can do. I CAN live independently!" - Saadia
At WORK Inc. we are proud of the opportunities that have been created for adults with disabilities to live as independently as possible in our communities. Our agency provides high quality residential support services in 24 hour residential group homes throughout the Greater Boston area. Over 80 individuals are successfully supported in these community-based housing programs. Each group home provides services to up to five people, and each home is staffed by our dedicated and experienced staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The group homes are based on a community-based rehabilitation model, supporting adults with disabilities to achieve their personal goals and to live as independently as possible. Depending on the unique needs of the individuals, we strongly encourage people to become involved in activities during the day including any combination of work, day habilitation, and recreation.
Who is eligible?
Referrals for residential services primarily come from the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) and the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB). However, referrals are also accepted from adults who are seeking an opportunity to live more independently and are able to pay privately.
Each community residential home provides services to five (5) or less individuals and each are staffed by a dedicated and competent workforce 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On the South Shore our group homes are located in Quincy, Milton, Braintree, Stoughton, Randolph and Brockton. On the North Shore we have group homes in West Roxbury, Winthrop, Andover and Methuen. Our group homes are located in attractive and comfortable houses and condominium complexes. Our residences function on a community-based rehabilitation model supporting people to achieve their personal goals and live as independently as possible.
