Would You Open Your Home & Your Heart?
Become a Community Companion Home Provider
Community Companion Home providers are warm, nurturing people
licensed by the State of Connecticut who accept the responsibility of supporting an adult
with IDD in the home. CCH providers assist with communication, everyday living skills,
setting goals, appointments and needs. Providers also help people with IDD keep in
touch with family and friends, make new friends, and participate in
everyday family life, community activities and recreation.
For many families, the most important reward of being a CCH provider
is not financial—it’s the satisfaction from becoming part of a dedicated group
of community members who make life better for people with IDD by opening hearts and homes.
