Housing Alternatives Inc.
H.A.I. is a non-profit corporation separate from, but working in conjunction with the Brown County Board of Developmental Disabilities (BCBDD). The H.A.I. was created to allow the BCBDD the ability to access capital assistance funds disbursed by the State of Ohio. H.A.I. currently owns three homes in Brown County that provides affordable housing for up to eight individuals. It is governed by a Board of Trustees and works closely with the BCBDD and its affiliated agencies to help eligible individuals live more independently.
Referrals for residential placements in H.A.I. homes are made by the Service and Support Administration Coordinators. Placements are determined based upon availability, emergency needs and/or waiting list priority.
The H.A.I. attempts to secure housing for eligible individuals based on choice, need, accessibility, and location. Housing options must be developed in accordance with each individual’s level of financial resources. Individuals pay rent through their own financial resources. Supported Living or Medicaid Waiver funds provide for the support service (through certified providers) necessary to ensure health and safety in the home.
