Skyline is a rambler style home in a quiet location in
Burnsville. The home is not located on a busy road, but
a major roadway is about two blocks away. Occasionally,
the home will have deer in the backyard during spring or
fall. There is a major shopping area located 3 miles
There are currently three men living in the home. The individuals living at the home have moderate to profound intellectual disabilities, some mood and seizure disorders, autism and blindness. The individuals living at this home like to play Wii (especially bowling), card games, listen to music, go out to parks, or attend community classes. Some classes enjoyed include crafts or art, movies, dances, sporting events, or looking at Christmas lights.
Sometimes, there is some loud hitting on the walls, as the individuals walk through the house, as a way to know where they are. One individual meets sensory needs by ripping cloth. There is no physical aggression at the home. Some of the individuals are not able to talk, and some do. The individuals attend a day placement (pending some re-openings).
An individual looking to move in should be fairly laid-back, enjoy music and not mind some loud noises. Due to the vulnerabilities of the other individuals living at the home, someone with physical aggression would not be a good fit.
The house is single staffed during the day and usually double-staffed in the evening. The overnight staff are awake. A RN is available if appropriate and funded.

Oak Hills is a one-level accessible townhome on a corner
lot in a residential area in St Louis Park. The home is near a large park, resturants and shopping.
There are currently three women living in the
home. The individuals living at the home have mild
to severe intellectual disabilities.
The open bedroom is spacious and has a walk-in shower across the hall. There are two large living room areas on both the North and South sides of the home, as well as a spacious kitchen.
Thomas Allen provides services to 4 individuals in an adjacent town home; this creates opportunity for routine socialization. An individual looking to move in will need to be female. Due to the vulnerabilities of the other individuals living at the home, someone with high behavioral expression or medical needs requiring intensive skilled nursing support, or those requiring overnight awake supervision would not be a good fit. The house has double-staffing on weekday evenings and the majority of awake weekend hours. The overnight is single-staffed with sleepover staff.
(Opening for female.)
