Our Story

As an Adult Family Home Agency (AFHA), Community Options Integrated Solutions (COIS) recruits, trains, and certifies family homes to mentor and provide services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have expertise and resources to create nurturing living arrangements where a person with a disability can become a fully participating family member in a private home. We work collaboratively with our certified families and our clients to put into action a person-centered plan that follows individual choice. We take pride in our value of listening and acting on how people want to live, work, play, recreate, socialize, and supervise.

As part of our ongoing case management, we monitor, support, and provide financial reimbursement to experienced providers who meet qualification standards. Services and support to the people we support and family home providers are customized to meet individual needs and circumstances. Through team efforts and professional consultation, COIS is able to develop living options with success in mind. 

What We Do


We have created these services out of the desire for more natural settings within the community that respect each person’s preferences, culture, religion, and personal values, and respect for sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex characteristics.


As California’s first Family Home Agency, we’ve been serving the community for 25 years. We’re proud of what we do and our ongoing commitment to our vision, mission, and values.


Natural families can play a valuable role in the person-centered process and we encourage each client’s natual family to take that active role. Family visits, letters, and calls are very much welcomed.


Consideration is given to each individual’s preferences, values, culture, aspirations and other factors when assessing placement options. The approach leads to a more comfortable experience.
