Our Residential Services help adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Arizona find a home they can love. We provide individualized support to members, focusing on increasing their independence and participation in the community.
Types of Living Arrangements
The Opportunity Tree supports two types of living arrangements: Group Homes and Individually Designed Living Arrangements (IDLAs).
Our Group Homes are small single-family homes that The Opportunity Tree owns and runs for members to live together. Staff from The Opportunity Tree are always present to help members perform daily activities. Our Group Homes promote a high quality of life through activities in the community and at home that enhance independence and social skills.
Individually Designed Living Arrangements (IDLAs)
IDLAs are different from Group Homes because members own or rent their own home and The Opportunity Tree only provides staff to help members be independent. These staff members are called Direct Support Professionals and they are trained in Respite Care, Attendant Care and/or Habilitation Services for each member.
We provide Direct Support Professionals for IDLAs where members live by themselves and for IDLAs where a group of housemates choose to live together. In either case, members and their families choose Direct Support Professionals to best fit their needs.
We encourage families to be involved in every step of the process so that members feel comfortable and supported.
How to Join
We offer Group Homes and Direct Support Professionals for IDLAs at our three locations in Phoenix (Perry Center), Casa Grande and Maricopa.
