Heritage Homes, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit agency incorporated in 1971 by parents, advocates and clergy in the Holland / Zeeland area to serve the housing needs of adults with developmental disabilities. The organization which began with one adult foster care home has grown to regularly serve individuals residing in Allegan, Kent, Muskegon and Ottawa Counties.
For the past 44 years, the organization has expanded its mission and services to include families affected by intimate partner violence, substance abuse, chronic illness, low-income and homelessness. Now, Heritage Homes serves families and individuals through developing and managing supportive housing apartment units, as well as providing specialized supportive services in these areas: residential care, community living supports, social recreation and daytime enrichment.
The agency currently operates four state-licensed adult foster care homes in Ottawa County, serving residents with significant ongoing daily support needs. Proudly, our homes are accredited by CARF, an internationally recognized rehabilitation industry accrediting body.
The goal of Community Living Support (CLS) is to facilitate and strengthen community inclusion and participation, independence, and self sufficiency for qualified individuals who receive support through their local Community Mental Heath agency. CLS may be provided in the participants home and practically anywhere in their community where some assistance and support could lead to further independence.
Our Daytime Enrichment Program, based in Allendale and Coopersville, offers person-centered community based services that are enjoyable, safe, and physically and socially enriching. This program provides supports to adults that have significant ongoing therapeutic, medical and sensory needs. The supports may be provided in the program facility or in community settings such as libraries, museums, parks, universities, churches, and other venues of personal interest.
The social recreation program facilitates activities and events for individuals residing in Ottawa County that have a developmental disability, encouraging social networking, peer interaction and community engagement. Events and activities may be provided in the program facility or in community settings (such as libraries, museums, parks, universities, churches, and other recreational or venues of personal interest).
