Adult Foster Homes

Purpose

Purpose

​Adult Foster Homes (AFH) provide housing and treatment services to adults diagnosed with a qualifying mental illness. Providers or a resident manager live on site with the individuals they serve and assist with the activities of daily living. The capacity of an AFH is up to five residents per home.

Licensing and admission requirements

Requirements

​AFHs are licensed annually. Additional inspections may be scheduled with or without advance notice to ensure continued compliance with the Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) and Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS).

Persons who qualify for services must meet current guidelines, listed in the Adult Foster Home OARs.

Contacts

If you are interested in placement at an AFH, please contact your local community mental health program. For more information on licensing, please contact an AFH compliance specialist:
