The purpose of Emmaus Home is to provide an alternative living experience for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. By offering a family-like environment. Adults with Intellectual and Developmental disabilities feel loved and spiritually safe enough to explore their own gifts, personality, and possibilities. Our model of mission-oriented team living in community with our Adults offers a growth opportunity for both as they learn from each other how to become more human. By including local faith and community involvement and activities, our members are not only exposed to more people and experiences, but our local community is becoming friends with our members who for too long were hidden in large institutions or in their own homes.
