Extended Family Home


Apex strives to provide personal attention, support and advocacy to the clients we serve, as well as the subcontractors and/or Extended Family Homes (EFH). This allows the EFH to provided exemplary care and attention to the individual in a family friendly and least restrictive environment. Apex believes that this type of attention and care enhances the success of individual's social, physical, vocational/educational, behavioral, and psychological status. The quality of services and safety of the individuals served through the Department of Developmental Disabilities is on of Apex's main focuses. 


The Apex DD program is based on the following beliefs: 

  • Increasing an individual's support system through informal supports creates greater long-term success
  • Individuals have inherent rights and choices related to their lives. All goals and behavioral support plans should be employed considering the choices of the individual being served. 
  • Positive behavioral supports should be used in place of negative consequences and other punitive measures. 
  • Individuals should be served in the least restrictive setting while enhancing community inclusion.
