Fraser has 27 Supervised Living homes for teens and adults with special needs. The homes are in neighborhoods throughout Hennepin and Anoka counties. These homes are available for individuals who need more support at home and in their community. Our goal for Supervised Living is to support the developmental, health, safety and social needs of each resident.
In each home, three or four people live together. Fraser staff is on-site 24 hours a day. They help residents manage their daily needs, like doing their hair, brushing their teeth or exercising. Our staff works with each individual to set and achieve goals. We also help them engage with the community through coffee dates, social events and trips to supermarket.
A registered nurse provides a health service consultation. Accessible homes are available for individuals with physical disabilities.
To qualify, individuals must have a diagnosis of a developmental, cognitive or other disability from the State of Minnesota. The county of financial responsibility then pays for the individual’s rent.
