Special Kids Special Families (SKSF) is a Colorado non-profit 501(c)3 organization. SKSF was founded in 1998 to provide respite and care for children and adults with disabilities and special needs. Various programs offer community support services to families and are designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities throughout their life span.
SEEKING HOST HOME PROVIDERS
Special Kids Special Families (SKSF) Residential Services and Host Home Program differ from others in the sense that we create a family like atmosphere with strong customer support. We are willing to go the extra mile and take additional steps to ensure quality care supporting adults with developmental disabilities and special needs.
An SKSF Host Home Provider (HHP) is an Independent Contractor who provides care in their home for developmentally disabled adults. Depending on the individual’s abilities and goals, HHPs will assist with personal care, meal planning, medical appointments, community activities and hobbies, safety skills, social skills, and life skills.
We have a very high standard for what a Host Home Provider should provide. We screen our applicants thoroughly to ensure quality within our team. We seek caring and compassionate individuals willing to take their position as seriously as we do. We seek individuals who have a passion to help others in need, have the ability to provide a stable home environment with great patience. A Host Home Provider will be a friend, mentor, care giver, and advocate. With this in mind, we are looking for someone who is not seeking merely a paycheck, but rather looking to support and enhance the lives of those we serve. We also have a need for wheel chair accessible residences and providers (not required).
After completing the application, providing references and background check, a home inspection is completed to ensure compliance with our regulations. Once approved, additional meetings are required to place the potential candidate in your home.
