How it Works
UMAR offers consumer-driven services for adults (age 18+) with a primary diagnosis of an intellectual or other developmental disability. With a person-centered approach, trained and caring UMAR staff support and empower each individual based on their needs and personal goals.
In UMAR’s 24 group homes, six adults live in a positive, healthy family setting. Each adult has his or her own room, and direct support professionals are present 24 hours/day to help residents reach their full potential in all areas of life.
Located north of Charlotte, UMAR’s supported apartments let individuals live as independently as possible in their own studio apartments with some staff support. In case of emergency, staff is accessible 24 hours/day.
UMAR provides assistance to adults living with their parent/guardian, in their homes or smaller group settings. Services help adults develop skills to maximize independence, wellness and autonomy.
