Group Home Program

Citizens of Maine offers a high quality residential option with the Group Home Program. The term Group Home can be deceiving, in that the perception of a group home is institutional, crowded, and unwelcoming. Our homes are not like that at all; but instead you'll find our homes quaint, warm, inviting, spacious, and reflect the common theme throughout the entire agency of unparalleled quality of care. Our homes house no more than two individuals per residential site. Staff support is provided around the clock to assist each individual in his/her own home.

Assistance and Independence

Support is provided based on the needs of each individual, and remarkable attention is given to allow each resident ownership and pride in his/her home. Our support staff is a guest in the home, and we charge each resident with the dignity and respect of living as independently as they are capable of living. Group Home residences can provide a level and standard of living that is reflective of any citizen living on his/her own, but with the added security and surety of available staff assistance as needed. These homes can also provide a higher and more frequent level of support that is reflective of a medical facility, but with the added warmth and luxury of a household.Staff support in a Group Home is provided 24/7 and on a rotating shift schedule, which allows an individual to see a fresh face, learn different skills and interests from a variety of people, and find more opportunity to develop compatible relationships that could last for years or a lifetime. Our Group Homes excel by the simple fact that we have heard it said over and over from individuals that they want their "own place" and we listened! Each home is created with the pairing of two individuals who can cohabitate in harmony and they are each given their own say to decorate as they desire, create menus and dishes of their liking, and be hosts and hostesses to their own guests.

Come for a Tour

With the permission of the residents, we are happy to provide tours of our group homes for individuals seeking a Group Home residential model with Citizens of Maine. A tour will illustrate our strong sense of family at work. We pride ourselves on creating a family oriented atmosphere teeming with the support of the residents we serve and their families. A Group Home is a residential program offered to individuals receiving MaineCare through Section 20 and 21 waiver programs.
