Here's some information on some of the group homes in Huntington. There are likely more but this is what I came up with using a quick google search.
Autism Services Center (http://www.autismservicescenter.org/homes2.htm - broken link)
http://cabell.lib.wv.us/IR/subject_9850.htm

Here are some links for Huntington if you'd like to know more about the city.

taw I've seen a few in charleston being managed as private residence settings chaperoned by aides. I think that particular category falls under home health aide agencies.
Other group home settings:
East of huntington is cross lanes group home
east of that is dunbar arc group home
east of that is charleston turning point
good luck

These holding pens for the aged are real money makers...

Stacy and Mark drop off the old codger, tell the owner to take his estate and get rid of it...sign over the pension and the SSI...and say..."We don't want to be troubled...so don't call us again...We're spending the cash in the Bahamas"

Happens everyday...It's like a farm..farming the old ones like a crop...

It's the same with people with developmental disabilities. Human beings have an amazing ability to take advantage of those who are weaker.

But there are a few that really do care and want to make life better for others. When I was a case manager, the paid me very well, and I had great benefits. The people that actually did the work made minimum wage, had no benefits, and had zero support from the agencies that hired them. I went home in tears many nights.

Yea, It's a really messed up system! My parents know I will care for them when the need me. I hope my children will do the same. I think it's a discussion that we all need to have with our families.

To the OP, if you want to do in home care...the ARC in Clarksburg is a great agency to work for. They don't pay what you would be expecting though.
