The Homemaker Program is funded through a grant from the federal U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) Program administered by the Department of Human Services provides funding for Adult Homemaker Services through contracts with an established network of local non-profit agencies and local governments.
Services are limited to low-income elderly or disabled adults who are referred by the DHS Adult Protective Service program due to allegations of abuse, neglect, or exploitation.
Homemaker Services are limited in-home personal care services designed to allow participants to remain in their own residence and maintain independence.
