At this time, Creative Pathways offers three services based around quality living and independence.

Individualized Supported Living (ISL)

Host Home

Personal Assistance

Support Broker

If you, a family member, or friend believe that you or someone else might qualify for services, please contact us so that we can answer any questions that you might have.

Living in an ISL enables individuals with disabilities to be fully integrated in communities. ISL services provide individualized supports, delivered in a personalized manner, to individuals who live in homes of their choice. Individuals receiving ISL supports may choose with whom and where they
live, and the type of community activities in which they wish to be involved.

Personalized Support Plans are created and customized for the individual in collaboration with the agency, the individual receiving services, support coordinators, and guardians (if applicable). 

Homes are staffed by Creative Pathways up to 24 hours a day 7 days a week depending on the individuals needs in order to best support the individual in all aspects of daily life. 

What is the Host Home Program?

Host Home is a program provided by the Department of Mental Health and shared with the Children’s Division. The program is designed to keep individuals in a traditional home setting, where they will be a part of a positive environment. Host home families act as advocates, friends and mentors who not only share their home with people with developmental disabilities, but also help them engage in community life, teach them new skills, help them make friends and enrich their lives.


On average, a host home receives an approximate compensation of $2517.20-3550.80 monthly but may vary based on individuals needs. A host home can qualify to host up to 3 individuals.

Benefits of the Host Home setting for the Supported Individual

  • Inclusion in the community.
  • Stable support system and a higher quality of life for the person receiving the service.
  • Provides an individual the choice of staying in their local community under current services.

Who can qualify to offer this service?

A host home can be a family, single person, college student, single parent, etc.
