All clients accepted into the Home Base program must complete an admission application and various steps of assessment. The first step is to complete an admission application below. This is followed by an intake interview for qualified applicants and Home Base staff. A written admissions assessment of the information gathered from the intake interview will be prepared, addressing the physical, educational, financial, medical, spiritual, and emotional needs of the client. The level of motivation on the part of the potential resident is a significant factor in determining cottage placement.

Information needed before admission can be considered is:

  • Birth certificate
  • Social security card
  • GED Certificate/High School Diploma/College Transcript or Diploma*
  • Current Driver's License or State Picture ID
  • Automobile insurance certificate*
  • Automobile registration*
  • Documentation of negative TB test within last 60 days
  • Criminal background check

*if applicable

Once a completed application is returned to the Home Base office, the intake coordinator will contact the applicant about next steps in the process. If it is determined that admission to Home Base is not appropriate for the ministry or the applicant, referrals are available to appropriate nonprofit resources in the community.
