It is a misconception to think one’s options are living with parents or moving into a grouphome. Now it is important to note that there are great grouphome providers out there, and not all should be branded as a poor option.

Also explore the filters on the AHN Housing Directory as they have mini-explanations of different support and housing models. Unfortunately, just because these different models exist does not mean you will have access to them. State policy, whether you can private pay, affording rent, availability, or having the necessary supports through an HCBS waiver are all influencers that can limit your housing and support choices.
