Adult Group Homes

Adult Group Homes

Junior Blind's Adult Group Homes provide a family-living environment for adults, ages 18-59, who are blind, visually impaired or multi-disabled and may be medically fragile. Up to six residents share a single-family home in the community with round-the-clock supervision by our professional and caring staff.

Residents live in safe, comfortable and supportive single-family residences which have been renovated to meet their special medical and developmental needs.

Located near Junior Blind's beautiful eight-acre campus, our Adult Group Homes offer residents access to many amenities, including our 24-hour staffed medical office, Special Education School, audiovisual stimulation center, Mattel Park sensory playground, fitness room and gymnasium, swimming pool, bowling alley and music room.

Junior Blind's Adult Group Homes are equipped to meet the needs of residents with severe behavioral and emotional disorders. We offer residents therapeutic recreational activities, community outings, structured programming and comprehensive case management so they can develop basic life skills and maximize their potential.

At Junior Blind, we value families first, which means that we offer a variety of services to encourage residents and their families to maintain strong family relationships. Families are invited to visit residents frequently, participate in our support groups and attend family camp sessions at our Camp Bloomfield in Malibu, California.
