Our Supported Living Program
My FIRST Key evolved from the desire to provide a safe and healthy residential environment with flexible, accessible and self-directed support. In this way, My FIRST Key creates opportunities for enhanced independence and wellbeing both in and out of the home. Our team of Direct Support Professionals fulfill this mission by facilitating quality services through their collective talents so that they can make a difference every day.
We believe in a team approach to realizing the potential for independence in every keyholder. Our DSPs, family members, friends, natural community supporters, and the keyholders themselves dream, communicate, and plan for this next step towards residential independence and self-determined choice. No one single person is responsible for the success of this transition; we are all committed to changing lives for the better.
If this is the desire of your loved one or your family, My FIRST Key staff invite you to contact us. We are ready to hear your story, assess your priorities and concerns, then develop a plan that prepares everyone for success. My FIRST Key offers the staff support for an individual to live in their own home, but it is not a housing program. My FIRST Key is an Innovations Waiver Service and FIRST does not own any properties. Supported Living looks different for every single person and there is no typical model, so with the right planning and support team anyone can thrive in the supported living model.
