Mission: To ensure children and adults with learning and developmental disabilities have the homes, environments, and opportunities to be valued members of our community. We serve this mission by providing housing and supportive services to adults and children throughout our service area so that they can build their life-skills and confidence to live life to their fullest potential.
Programs: The help foundation provides an array of housing and supportive services to adults and children with developmental disabilities throughout cuyahoga, lake, and summit counties in northeast ohio. Help six chimneys apartments provides supportive urban housing to assist in developing the independent living skills and confidence of adults with developmental disabilities. Help housing for the disabled provides 24 garden style apartments at three sites in cleveland which address the needs of individuals who have surpassed the goals of semi-independent living, but require additional training before progressing to fully independent status. With group homes and apartment clusters across our service area adults who have developmental disabilities are supported and served to help them live the best life they are able. In addition to our residential services help operates a very successful adult day support program offering daytime social and recreation activities for adults focusing on community involvement and cultural experiences. During the summer the help summer program serves more than 300 children with medical and developmental disabilities in a school-like setting to prevent loss of education and developmental progress. Since 1965 the help foundation has been working to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities, assist their families, and advocate on their behalf. We are proud to have served thousands of people during these years and to continue this fine tradition for decades to come.
