St. Joseph Home

Our Mission

Our mission is to care for our residents’ medical needs, but also to give attention to their social, educational, habilitative, and spiritual development. St. Joseph Home residents attend school or workshop, and participate in a variety of activities and community outings and programs.

A family’s decision to place their child at St. Joseph Home is always a difficult one, and often comes after the child grows too heavy or large for a family to lift and take care of by themselves. Some families take advantage of our respite center services prior to placing their child permanently with St. Joseph Home, so they gain knowledge of the services provided and trust in the loving care their child receives.

St. Joseph Home is the only agency in Hamilton County serving non-ambulatory, non-verbal and medically fragile infants, children and adults. Our Harold C. Schott Respite Center provides short-term care for up to eight children or young adults at a time. Our new Adult Day Program provides recreational and leisure activities with a focus on community integration for our adult residents.
