Enhanced Behavioral Supports Homes

Enhanced Behavioral Supports Homes (EBSHs) are adult residential facilities or children’s group homes. EBSHs provide 24-hour non-medical care in a homelike setting to individuals with developmental disabilities with challenging behaviors who require additional supports, staffing, and supervision. The homes have unique characteristics and offer person-centered planning, positive behavior supports, trauma-informed care, and other services and supports which are beyond what is typically available in other community-based homes. EBSHs are certified by the Department of Developmental Services and licensed by the State Department of Social Services.
