Fraser has 27 Supervised Living homes for teens and adults with autism and disabilities throughout Hennepin and Anoka counties. These homes are available for individuals who need more support at home and in their community. Our goal for Supervised Living is to support the developmental, health, safety and social needs of each individual.
In each home, three or four people live together. Fraser has staff onsite whenever individuals are at home. They help individuals manage their daily needs, like doing their hair, brushing their teeth or exercising. Our staff works with each person to set and achieve goals. We also help them engage with the community through coffee dates, social events and trips to the supermarket.
A registered nurse provides a health service consultation. Accessible homes are available for individuals with physical disabilities.
The DD, BI or CADI waiver will cover the cost of the programming and housing. There is also a private pay option.
