Alternative Family Living (AFL)

Alternative Family Living (AFL) settings provide an individual with a unique opportunity learn and grow within a family unit that has been licensed to open their home to an individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This provides an opportunity for increased independence as a person becomes part of a new family structure and explores school, work, day program, volunteering and community and family-based activities.   

Monarch currently provides AFL in Cabarrus, Forsyth, Gaston, Mecklenburg, Moore, Richmond and Stanly counties.
