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.
