About uS

First Vision Healthcare offers an innovative approach to home and community-based services. We recognize barriers that prevent many people with disabilities from being active and included members of their communities and seek to overcome the barriers by tailoring each person’s needs in a unique way for a unique experience. We work diligently and take pride in finding the best match for our members whether we’re serving them in their own homes, in our group homes or in one of our host homes. Our experience and passion for what we do allows our dedicated team to focus on the individual and to seek creative ways to increase the individual’s quality of life by ensuring that the individual lives, learns, works and enjoys life in the most integrative way, and leads a life that is meaningful and fulfilling in every aspect.

We operate with four different types of waivers, including Brain Injury (BI), Physical Disability (PD), Intellectual Disability Waiver (ID), HIV/AIDS Waiver, Elderly Waiver, Children’s Mental Health Waiver (CMHW), and provide Supported Community Living (SCL), Agency Consumer Directed Attendant Care (CDAC) and Respite Services. We work collaboratively with Case Managers, legal guardians, and our members to ensure a process that ensures the best possible outcomes for the members.

Through advanced care and support, we seek to provide the most accommodating physical and social environment where each of our members can thrive to their fullest potentials, and where each can reinvent and reinsert themselves to occupy their rightful position within the community.
