Community Homes
Aurora Residential Alternatives (ARA) provides homes throughout Wisconsin for those with physical and developmental disabilities. We have extensive experience working with individuals who have pervasive needs including those with medical or behavioral challenges. And we strongly believe that each person can expand his or her life skills and experience life-long learning.

ARA provides a full spectrum of community based residential options including the following:
• Supervised Living Arrangements (1 – 2 person occupancy)
• Licensed Adult Family Homes (3 - 4 person occupancy)
• Licensed Community Based Residential Facilities (maximum 8 person occupancy)
• Supportive Home Care
• Respite Services

What makes ARA homes unique?
Individual Approach
Services provided are based on each individual’s needs and desired outcomes. Whether the need is for long-term housing for a disabled individual, or transitional housing after a hospital stay, our homes can accommodate the need.

Our Staff
Many of our staff have served in the mental health community for years and so have a wide range of experience and expertise. All staff are thoroughly trained and have a passion for serving individuals in their chosen community.

Our Commitment
We are committed to providing individuals with community-based services which keep them active and engaged in their community and provide an alternative to facility-based long term care.

What service components are available?
