Sobre Nós

Leveraging Equal Access Program (LEAP) is a non-profit Adult Family Home Agency (AFHA). LEAP is vendorized through California’s Regional Centers and the Department of Developmental Services to provide oversight, training, direct support and advocacy for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in private family homes. Leveraging Equal Access Program (LEAP) is a non-profit, adult family home agency established to assist individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. LEAP staff and consultants work collaboratively with individuals, their natural supports, families and the Regional Centers across California. Our staff are experienced, highly trained, and genuinely eager to assist. We listen and pay close attention to the needs and wants of the individuals we serve. 


LEAP Family Homes are thoroughly vetted for safety, comfort and community access. Each home is inspected from top to bottom, checking the details to ensure it meets the health and safety standards of the LEAP brand. These homes have each faucet, toilet, railing, stair, window, smoke alarm and even the water temperature inspected for safety and ease of use. 


In many ways, LEAP functions like traditional foster care, but for adults with developmental disabilities. We train potential home providers to work with our clients. We prepare them for understanding and assisting individuals with a broad spectrum of developmental/intellectual disabilities and abilities. 


LEAP's focus is on matching home providers and individuals we serve. We do not place people because there is an open bedroom. We look at schedules, lifestyles, interests, socio-cultural commonalities, religious preferences, love of pets, and commonalities to bring people together. 


LEAP is not intended to be a short term response to a housing problem. It is intended to be long term support and services enriching the lives of all participants. LEAP is intended to open the hearts and minds of the communities we all live in. We believe there is enough room for everyone.
