Colorado, January 22nd, 2024 - Fifteen individuals have been welcomed into Vista Care Colorado since the new year as Vista Care continues its mission to “serve more people better, while keeping them in our hearts and actions at all times”.
Vista Care, a leading provider of person-centered supportive services, is thrilled to announce the expansion of its Host Home program into the state of Colorado. This milestone marks the organization's entrance into its fifth state, reinforcing its commitment to delivering high-quality, community-based care. Vista Care provides supportive services to individuals with intellectual, developmental, physical, and behavioral health challenges and is currently serving over 700 individuals in Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Host Homes, also referred to as Shared Living, represent a significant shift from traditional care settings. These homes offer a unique opportunity for individuals to receive tailored support in the nurturing environment of a private residence. Rooted in the principles of life-sharing, these services emphasize natural support systems and active community involvement. The Host Home Provider serves as a guide and mentor, offering assistance in areas such as daily living, safety, community engagement, healthy living, and advocacy. This approach enables individuals to flourish, centered around their unique needs and preferences, fostering a genuine sense of belonging and community integration.
"We are excited to begin our work in Colorado and serve more people better while keeping them in our hearts and actions at all times," stated Liz Olive, Vista Care’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our teams in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction are committed to providing an exceptional host home experience through person-centered support."
Having established a reputation for excellence in person-centered care in other states, Vista Care's strategic expansion into Colorado represents its dedication to broadening its impact and reach. The organization is eager to forge strong local partnerships and work collaboratively with Colorado communities to enhance the well-being of those it serves.
"Serving people in Host Homes in a new state is an incredible journey to foster meaningful connections and to help make a positive difference in the lives of those we mutually serve with Host Home Providers,” stated Chad Wietrick, Vista Care’s National Director of Shared Living. “This allows us the possibility to weave stories, forge connections, and embrace the richness of diversity while fostering genuine, heartfelt moments.”
