Home-based services are those services offered to an individual residing at home or in an alternative setting. The purpose of home-based services is to offer supports to an individual and, in many instances, to his or her family. These supports enable and empower the individual to develop or maintain skills necessary in everyday living.

The individual and his or her support team, including the support coordinator, home-based coordinator, and family or provider, determine specific services to be provided. Outcomes or goals are person-centered, meaning plans are developed based on the needs of each individual. Some outcomes, for example, may focus on increasing participation in community events or to develop social skills. Some outcomes are community based while others are specific to in-home needs.
