The R & R House
The continued efforts of our volunteers, businesses, and vendors over the last several years made our dream of the R&R House a reality. The house was established in October 2017 and is located in the Western New York area. It's a ranch style home with 6 bedrooms, a shared living space, fenced in backyard, and is managed by The Arc Erie County. They provide 24/7 support to the residents and facilitate experiences within the community relating to their interests and abilities.
BENEFITS OF THIS TYPE OF HOUSING
Promotes independence - Allows residents to make their own choices about activities and daily living with support as needed.
Promotes social activity - Allows stronger parental involvement, socialization between residents, and participating in community experiences.
Promotes safety - Allows families a peace of mind knowing their family member is being taken care of and will be taken care of when they're gone. 24/7 care provided by a selected agency to ensure safety in terms of health care, behaviors, and supervision during social activities.
