Eligibility and Referral

Eligibility for the program is determined by Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities (FCBDD). Individuals interested in the program must be eligible for services from FCBDD and must first contact and work through their Service Coordinator at FCBDD. The Service Coordinator starts the referral process by contacting Supported Living Options Specialists, who in turn forwards the referral to Creative Housing If you have a question about eligibility or the referral process, call FCBDD Service Coordination at (614-464-2743).


Upon referral, Creative Housing arranges for visitation to apartments that best fit the needs of the client. Possible needs taken into consideration may include location in Franklin County, COTA bus availability, handicap accessibility, being close to stores, restaurants, churches, family or work, and various amenities. Finding the best fit for our referrals hopefully will lead to long term success in the generalized apartment community.
