Filling Homes offer a wide range of services to developmentally disabled individuals in Henry, Fulton, and Williams Counties. These individuals demonstrate a wide range of abilities, thus requiring quite individual support services to foster their independence.  Additionally, individuals Filling Homes serve can make choices regarding services they receive, as well as being able to participate as fully as possible as members of the communities in which they live.

Originally, Filling Home was built to be solely a residential home for developmentally disabled children.  However, over the years as the children grew to adulthood and no other residential services were available to care for them, these adults remained as residents of the Filling Home. Today 56 residents make Filling Home their home.  Occasionally, Filling cares for individuals on an “emergency basis’ for up to a year when families face problems which mean they can not longer care for their disabled child or adult.

Over the years, the original Filling Home began to expand its services in other areas to provide support services for disabled individuals.  In the fall of 1996, Filling Home took over the management of two group homes, one in West Unity and the other in Bryan Ohio, providing 24-hour care for 16 adults.  However, in January of 2000, these group homes became a permanent part of the Filling Home organization. These homes, each serve 8 adults and provide a smaller more homelike environment in which the residents can increase their independent living skills.  As is the case with Filling Home (the base residential facility), the group homes are funded through the State of Ohio Medicaid Program and are governed under the same State of Ohio regulations for provision of services.  Periodic reviews are conducted by the State of Ohio to insure that regulation compliance is met or provided services.

In addition to beginning group home services in 1996, Filling Home  also began serving individuals in supported living settings.  Supported living services are provided through “Waivers” which is a partnership of federal, state, and county funds.  An individual is provided services based on his/her need for support.  Some need services a few hours a week, yet most others receive 24-hour care in homes which house 3 to 4 people.

In addition, Filling offers community services such as use of the Filling Home Therapy pool, Arthritis Classes, use of the exercise room, rental of the multipurpose room for various activities, etc.  For more complete information regarding Filling Homes Services, click on the various topics at the left hand of this page.
