Children’s Group Homes
Genesee Lake School developed children’s group homes for residents needing a less restrictive environment, and as a step toward independence. These are community living arrangements, and are licensed by the State of Wisconsin. These homes are designed for 8 to 14 children, ranging in age from 6 to 18.
Located in surrounding neighborhoods, programming focuses on community integration. The home-like atmosphere provides more normalized living and specific training in daily living skills. The decision for group home placement is facilitated in cooperation with the child’s referring agency.
Adult Group Homes
Independent living skills and enhancement of positive self-image are the goals of Genesee Lake School’s programming for adult group homes. Sequential skill development training is provided in areas of personal hygiene, housekeeping, budgeting, menu planning, meal preparation, and leisure time planning. Day programming for school/work, medical services, case management, and 24-hour supervision are also provided.
GLS operates adult group homes specializing in, but not limited to, particular low-incidence syndromes. All adult group homes are licensed by the State of Wisconsin as Community Based Residential Facilities (CBRFs).
