Group Homes

A group home is a generic term that can describe many different types of residential situations.  The phrase group home can be applied to residential services for children or residential services for adults.  A residential service means that the individual lives full time in your home or a home you provide.  Also, group home is not a license term, although many people use the term to describe a residential option that is licensed such as a personal care home (PCH), a community living arrangement (CLA), or for a residential program for children.
