Homeward Bound’s Bluebird House

Vujovich and BATC team up with Homeward Bound

Which has a mission to provide innovative & life enriching services to children, adolescents and adults with disabilities.  Homeward Bound’s Bluebird House is a CAC or Community Alternative Care home, providing services to 4 young men who are among the most medically fragile individuals in our community.  Minnesota CAC homes provide individuals access to 24 hour nursing care.  The intent of this type of home is to divert individuals with severe and compromised health issues away from hospitals and nursing homes and into the community.

The benefits of a CAC home are immeasurable.  Individuals who live in CAC homes have an increased lifespan and rate of survival.  In addition to this, CAC homes save taxpayers money by providing personalized care with smaller, known staff instead of a large hospital setting with many staff.

Matthew, Scott, Randy and Daniel have outgrown Bluebird House.  It is simply not large enough for four young men who utilize wheelchairs for mobility and have a significant amount of necessary medical equipment, as well as Homeward Bound staff, family, friends and guests.
