AFHA

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. [2] 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.
