Our Services


Blue Water Developmental Housing, Inc. uses person–centered planning to promote choice, self–determination and the empowerment of each individual in creating their own plan of service.

Community-Based

BWDH's Community-Based Program offers support services for individuals with disabilities who reside independently or with their families in the community. The services provided focus on personal self sufficiency, independence and promotion of one's integration into the community. These services enable individuals to live in the least restrictive manner.

Enriching Community Life Program

The purpose of this program is to empower, educate and support individuals with disabilities so that they may live as integral and respected members of their community.

Through the Enriching Community Life Program, para-professional staff provide community-based support that is designed by the consumer using the person-centered planning process. Consumers have the opportunity to choose from a variety of curriculum based skill sessions. Each session provides "real life" experiences to increase individual skills such as problem-solving techniques and to establish connections in the community. Class choices are based on consumer interest and need.

Residential

BWDH's Residential Program offers community living in the family–like settings of its ten group homes (See Locations for group home contact information). All residential homes are supervised twenty–four hours a day by staff and are licensed by the State of Michigan. Trained residential aides and an interdisciplinary team of professionals work together to coordinate Clinical Services such as Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, Medical, Dietary, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Psychological and Behavioral as needed. Staff also assists consumers with Skill Training in order for them to develop the tools necessary to live as independently as possible. Through Service Coordination, BWDH manages intakes, professional assessments, Plans of Service, linkage and monitoring, and advocacy services as needed for each individual.
