Here is a look at the services ROI proudly provides.
ROI’s services have grown throughout the years, but our original service is still at the core of what we do: providing group homes for adults with disabilities.
ROI has been accredited by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, since 1999. CARF is a private, not-for-profit organization that accredits programs and services in adult day services, assisted living, behavioral health, employment and community services, and medical rehabilitation. CARF develops and maintains practical and relevant standards of quality for such programs to determine how well an organization is serving its consumers. Every year the standards are reviewed and new ones are developed to keep pace with changing conditions and current consumer needs. ROI is proud to have received CARF accreditation as an indicator of ROI’s very high standards and quality. Our specialty services accredited by CARF include:

Finding safe, affordable housing is sometimes a daunting task for people with disabilities. Homestead Housing Services (HHS) recognizes this problem, and works to find solutions. By providing safe, attractive, affordable housing for people with disabilities in Kalamazoo County, HHS helps people take giant strides toward independence. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Residential Opportunities, Inc., HHS understands the unique needs of people with disabilities and the importance of a place to call home.
Our homes are located in clean, safe, quiet residential neighborhoods with easy access to public transportation and shopping. Housing includes single-family homes and small apartment communities. Barrier-free housing is also available.
HHS works with each individual one-on-one to find solutions. Rent for each home is tailored to meet individual circumstances; rent is established based upon HUD low-income housing guidelines. The result is that other disability funds are freed to use on other necessities.
To find out more about HHS and quality, affordable housing, call Ben Hoxey at (269) 250-8230, or Tom Ihling at (269) 250-8225.

Supported Living Alternatives (SLA)
For the people we serve, living in the community is a powerful statement, a monumental accomplishment, and a huge step toward independence. Currently, we help over 100 persons enjoy independent living in quality housing with staff assistance from 48 hours per month to 24 hours per day.
Having a home to call one’s own is a goal of tremendous importance for the people ROI serves. It symbolizes maturity and independence.
To learn more about SLA or to make a referral, call Andrea Heldart at (269) 250-8214. We'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, and help you determine if ROI's Supported Living Alternatives can provide the solutions you are looking for.
Responsible budgeting means fewer worries and more peace of mind. ROI handles the finances of 230 persons through this program every day.
For most people, paying bills and maintaining a budget is a necessary inconvenience. For some − especially people with mental retardation and other disabilities – it may be a huge barrier. ROI's payee service can help overcome this barrier.
An important goal of parents and caregivers is to find someone they can trust – someone who can care for their loved one, and in whom they have faith. Our experienced staff has received training in behavior management, administration of medications, first aid and CPR. This means safety for your child and peace of mind for you.
