The O.T.C. offers Residential Homes, also known as Group Homes, as an option for individuals with developmental disabilities. Residential homes are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure a safe and enriching home.
O.T.C Residential Homes promote a high quality of life in a caring environment. The goal is to provide each of the consumers with the opportunities and skills needed to become more self-sufficient, as the staff works to maintain an enjoyable learning environment.The O.T.C. has affirmed its commitment to provide quality homes that go beyond the basics to establish superior homes for our residents.
The Residential Homes house individuals over the age of 21 who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. Programming at the group home focuses on the development of practical living skills. The staff members will focus on teaching the residents daily living skills to increase their independence, which includes everything from grooming to completing household chores and preparing meals. During the day, residents will take part in the OTC’s Day Habilitation or Vocational Training programs. The OTC has also made it a priority to give these individuals opportunities to be active members of their communities.
Currently, the O.T.C. owns and manages three residential facilities. Our first group home, The Patricia Leuliette Home, in Burlington, which opened in 2008, and is home to five adult men. The Kathleen Wright Home, located in Marlton is home to four adult women. Our most recent facility, The Florence Gilbert home, located in Willingboro, is the residence to four adult men.
The OTC has plans to open two additional group homes in the next year, expanding the opportunities it provides for individuals with disabilities in and around Burlington County.
