Founders John and Ann Therrien started Community Homes in 1995 for their daughter, Jenny. They wanted her to have every opportunity to live more independently. Our first Adult Family Home in Bellevue still serves Jenny and four other women. Since then we have expanded to ownership of seven Adult Family Homes and have assisted families in the development of eight Shared Living households throughout King County, serving more than 50 residents. Our live-in, licensed care providers ensure continuity of support services, enabling our residents to achieve their highest potential.

Our Care Providers

Our dedicated Care Providers are the heart of our work. We are grateful for their passion and daily support of our residents.


“Thank you for meeting with us yesterday.  You were so helpful and the information you gave us made us see that our daughter’s community goals seem achievable.”

“We are grateful for all they do … Community Homes helps our young adults with disabilities lead a more independent life. It is reassuring to know that Community Homes is a huge piece of support for our daughter now and into the future.”

“Community Homes has been a life line of learning for me. They are someone I can trust, and entrust my most valuable possession with – my son.  And I am still listening and learning something new”
