Thank you for your interest in the Yellow House Community. We are currently accepting applications for residency. YHC is designed to be a lifelong home for individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities who require ongoing, 24/7 supervision and support. Each applicant has unique strengths, qualities, and needs. To understand the profile of residents we believe we can best support at YHC, please take time to review the Resident Profile (click on the link below).

Please note that we have modified our application process. The first step in the process is an informational Zoom meeting with a member of the YHC leadership team. To schedule an introductory meeting and request an application, please contact Elise Haydon at
