An Adult Residential Facility (ARF) provides 24-hour non-medical care for adults ages 18 through 59, who are unable to provide for their own daily needs. ARFs are suited for adults who are physically handicapped, developmentally disabled, and/or mentally disabled.

They are designed to treat adults who are mentally and/or physically disabled by providing mental health support services that will prepare clients for a more independent community living.

Residential Care Facilities provide long-term stay for adults who are in need of treatment services, therapeutic activities and other activities that are tailored to fit the different care needs of the residents.
