Balance has grown over 30 years, addressing critical needs previously unmet for individuals with developmental or intellectual disabilities. Our vision and commitment is that all people are fully included in the life of the community, supported in determining the direction of their own lives, in the most meaningful ways. We are dedicated to improving quality of life across the lifespan through services that promote and respond to personal goals, desires, needs and dreams, while balancing support and independence.
Balance owns and operates eight Adult Family Homes throughout Ozaukee County. The goal of each home is to create and maintain a balance between support and independence for each individual by providing a safe, emotionally stable and homelike/family environment for residents, working collaboratively with them, their families, guardians and support teams. Individual Support Plan created around those goals and needs, are used to develop and enhance the individual’s life so they can become a valued, contributing member of the community. Individuals living in Balance’s Adult Family Home are encouraged to grow daily and have major input in every aspect of their home life; including meals, recreational events, personal goals and advocacy.
