WHAT IS A HOST HOME PROVIDER?
A Host Home Provider is many things to many people. Ultimately, a Host Home Provider is an individual or family who wishes to include an adult with a developmental and/or intellectual disability into their home and family. This calling is not for everyone; a Host Home Provider is a compassionate, driven, and dedicated provider who believes that there is no limit to what any person can accomplish and will assist in every way to ensure that those goals are achieved. Likewise, Bridges of Colorado is committed to supporting our Host Home Providers in this passionate endeavor as we build stronger relationships by empowering our Host Home Providers and the people we support.
