Enrich inc. provides weekend and weekday Respite Services for Developmentally Disabled persons. Our services are based in the belief that people need stable, nurturing opportunities for self-expression, caring relationships, and the opportunity to develop and enjoy life.
Enrich inc has two separate Respite programs, one operating Monday-Sunday (24 Hours) and the other operating from 4:00 pm Friday through Sunday evening. Residents staying at Respite enter a “family” structure which provides:
1) A safe and nurturing environment
2) Trained staff
3) Supervision of health and medical concerns
4) Age appropriate interactions, activities, and materials
5) Opportunities to express preferences and make decisions.
Our professional staff and the residents are integrated in a “family” environment, which provides stability, nurturing, and predictability. The stay at Respite also provides the person’s family time to relax and “regenerate”. The staff works with the residents, their families, and case managers to assess the resident’s needs, develop structure and expectations in areas such as communication, community integration, domestic skills, and leisure.
Our Activities Coordinator researches activities and outings that ensure the client is having interesting and fun opportunities to experience. Each week new plans are created that cater to the needs and interest of our Respite clients. While they are staying at Respite our staff are trained to identity the clients likes and dislikes to use this information for future visits to better serve them.
Staff: Our primary staff is a Resource Counselor that works directly with the residents and is onsite whenever a resident is on site. Oversight is provided by the Designated Coordinator who will monitor, support, and assist the primary staff.

It is the mission of Enrich inc. to continuously improve services to the residents it serves. We fulfill this mission by listening to the needs and interests of residents and their representatives.
It is the philosophy of Enrich inc. that residential programs are based on a family structure. All persons living in an Enrich inc. home are members of a family. Each person is valued and is loved unconditionally; their role or capacities are not judged. We believe that developing roles in which a person can contribute to others in the family and in the community, elevates their own sense of self-worth and independence.
