Supportive Living providers providing services to individuals on the Developmental Disabilities (DD) waiver in an adult foster care home must also maintain a Foster Care facility license. Use the Department of Human Services (DHS) Licensing Information Lookup to verify this provider has an active foster care license or a Home and Community Based Services license.

In Minnesota there is not a service called "group home." When the term "group home" is used, it is usually referencing the corporate adult foster care service.

Learn more about this service when paid for under Developmental Disabilities Waiver in the Community-Based Services Manual.

Because service availability may be limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this service may be provided using phone calls or other technology to offer real-time contact and support.
