·       ON HOLD: We are looking for businesses, organizations, families, social groups and others to “Adopt” one of our homes.  We are looking for people to come in and host a party, do a craft project, give a cooking lesson, assist on recreational activities, decorate for the holidays or play music, just to mention a few ideas. We have residential group homes in the Rochester, New York area including Greece, PenfieldFairport, East Rochester, Rochester, Pittsford.

Often times the people we support lack connections and the opportunities to make new friends in the community.  The “Adopt a House” program gives them the opportunity to make those valuable connections with others as well as develop mutual friendships.
