Adult Family Home Agency
Agencia de Hogar Familiar para Adultos
Adult Family Home Agencies (AFHA) are private, not-for-profit agencies. Regional centers contract with AFHAs to develop homes for adults who want to live with a family.[l] After being trained, and with continued help from the AFHA, a family can take in one or two adults with developmental disabilities to live with them as part of their family.  The regional center will decide the need for AFHA services based on: Whether there are enough AFHAs providing services; Whether the AFHA will meet an unmet need in your IPP; and Whether there may be a future need for AFHA services within the regional center's service area.
