The mission of North Coast Community Homes is to develop and maintain safe, comfortable, quality homes for people with disabilities in northeastern Ohio. We endeavor to meet this goal by listening carefully to the special needs of each of our tenants and then developing a home that meets the needs as cost effectively as possible.
One of our tenants manifested aggressive behavior when she was triggered by shiney objects. With this in mind, North Coast Community Homes created a home for her that minimized all shiney surfaces and her sister wrote this in response, "I can't overstate what it meant for my sister's quality of life to have an environment that allowed her to feel secure. Please know that having a home that accommodated her sensory challenges gave her freedom to connect with people and to enjoy her daily life in a way that those of us who loved her so much and knew her long difficult history could have never imagined."
We also have a tenant whose disability causes her to break windows. After a significant amount of research, North Coast Community Homes was able to locate a glass product that would help to insure the safety of this tenant.
Other specialized features include grab bars, walk-in showers, magnetic locks, widened doorways to accommodate wheelchairs, smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, ramps, to name a few.
Fire suppression systems above stoves
To help protect our tenants from fire emergencies, fire suppression systems are installed in the hoods above stoves in all our properties. In homes where tenants require additional time to vacate their homes in case of a fire emergency, sprinkler systems are installed.
