Supportive Apartment Settings
Options Residential, Inc. discovered that as a part of our rehabilitative process that there were limited opportunities for individuals to actually transition out of Adult and Family Foster Care settings. As a result, we created a supportive apartment setting in Burnsville where individuals could live in a single occupancy apartment and receive supports in a customizable model which could also incorporate different services and supports from other providers as needed. Options Residential has expanded this option to several different cities to allow individuals to offer more choices of communities to live in.
Most of our apartments are single occupancy apartments. We do have 2 double occupancy apartments where families may be supported. Many units can obtain Housing Support (formerly known as Group Residential Housing). The individuals living here may be eligible to receive MSA (Minnesota Supplemental Assistance) funding to help with rent costs or potentially obtain other supports.
