Residential Services

Supervised Group Living:

Blue River Services, Inc. operates seven group homes in Crawford, Floyd, Harrison and Washington counties. The homes are staffed 24-hours a day by skilled and caring staff who provide continuous and individualized instruction in daily living skills, socialization, self-help skills, recreation and community integration. The focus is on increasing independence and learning to be an active member of their community.

Each individual is encouraged to take an active role in identifying personal goals that he/she would like to fulfil. Residents are instrumental in developing a plan of action to achieve their goals.

To be eligible, individuals must be 18 years of age or older, be Medicaid eligible, and have a primary diagnosis of an intellectual disability. Fees are paid through Medicaid. Six of the homes are wheelchair accessible.
