For 40 years, Cheyenne Village has been dedicated to providing assistance, training, and support to adults with developmental disabilities. Every individual served by Cheyenne Village has a personal service plan tailored to their unique needs. Our services include:
The Outreach Program provides a variety of support to individuals 18 and older with developmental disabilities who are living alone or with family caregivers and are not receiving government funded services. This program is supported by generous donations from local donors and foundations with little or no cost to the individual and their family (with the exception of some activity fees for recreational events).
Four group homes are staffed 24-hours per day, 365 days a year. Each home provides a private bedroom and common living areas for 4 to 7 individuals. Staff provides support in personal care, nutrition and meal preparation, financial management, home maintenance, transportation, healthcare, and benefits coordination to ensure that the health and safety needs of each individual are met.
Apartment Living Support:
Individuals living alone or with a roommate in apartment housing are supported in housekeeping, nutrition, financial management, scheduling, arranging transportation, healthcare and benefits coordination, and personal safety. Support plans are created based on individual needs. On Call Staff is available 24-hours per day, 365-days a year.
Individuals can be placed with a host family who provides 24-hour support. Individuals have a private bedroom within the home and are included in family activities. Cheyenne Village staff monitors the Host Home Provider and provides health care and benefits coordination.
Supported Living Services:
Contracted services are provided on an hourly fee-for-service basis. Individuals have family or other means of primary support. Hourly support can include home maintenance, community participation, and mentorship.
Cheyenne Village nurses monitor medical files, monitor and manage acute and chronic medical conditions, provide in-home care, coordinate benefits, coordinate appointments with doctors and specialists, provide transportation and accompany individuals to medical appointments.
Cheyenne Village staff provides support in the selection of leisure activities, hobbies, educational opportunities, community classes, and volunteer opportunities.
The Family Caregiver Program allows an individual the opportunity to become a paid caregiver to their family member with a developmental disability by becoming an employee of the agency.
Respite Care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home.
