CPL has an urgent need for host homes.  A "host home" is a general term that encompasses individuals, couples and families who are willing to provide a safe, nurturing and loving environment to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  You can make a real difference to an individual in need of this safe and loving home.  Consider sharing your love and support by becoming a host home.
