Home. Made Possible.
A group living situation can never replicate the loving care that a person receives from their family, but through our focus on staff training and creating a caring culture of respect and empowerment in each setting, we try. MOKA employees are committed to providing support and services that are person-centered, culturally competent, trauma-informed, and focused on creating a culture of gentleness for all.
MOKA’s residential services are designed to serve adults (18 years and older) with intellectual and developmental disabilities in small residential settings throughout West Michigan. We have homes located in Muskegon, Ottawa, Kent and Allegan Counties, each serving no more than six people. Employees provide training, supervision, and support for people receiving our residential services.
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in one of our group living settings have the opportunity for learning, developing and maintaining skills to increase their independence, participate in their community, maintain existing relationships and develop new relationships as desired. The level of assistance can range from hands-on to simply providing reminders based on the person’s needs and skills. Support can include assistance with planning, medication management, training in self-help skills, household management, budgeting, personal hygiene, behavior management, recreation and leisure planning, and safety skills as desired by the person. Assistance with coordinating medical, psychiatric, dental, or other community health care services, assistance with dietary/nutritional needs, referrals to community resources, and training in self-advocacy are also available.
To access our services, most people are referred to us and authorized for services through the local community mental health agencies in Muskegon, Ottawa, Kent, or Allegan Counties. Those interested in our residential services can also contact us directly with questions.
