My name is Erin Ross and I am the Founder of Home Sweet Home Foundation. My passion for helping people with disabilities live meaningful, dignified lives and become contributing members of their communities was inspired by my friend since kindergarten, Justin. As Justin and I grew-up together and my experience as a special education teacher, I realized the need for helping people with disabilities at each transition or age-related stage in their lives. What struck me was after the 22nd birthday of an adult with an intellectual/developmental disability, funding stops. It becomes the financial responsibility of the parents to find housing, supported employment, transportation, or day programs for their child. UNLESS, they are fortunate to have received funding from their state for housing, supported employment, transportation, or attendance to a day program. EVEN IF, the parents do receive funding, there is a short fall for the daily needs and general up keep to ensure the quality of life for the adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities and THAT IS WHERE HOME SWEET HOME COMES IN TO FILL IN THE GAP! We want each individual to feel happy, safe, confident and proud of THEIR HOME!
