Homebound Program

The mission of the Homebound Program to enhance the quality of life to an individual with a disability, who because of the severity of their disability (ies) may not have vocational potential, by providing services thereby enabling them to achieve and maintain maximum independence in their home.

In 1978, Gov. George Wallace was instrumental in passing legislation that created the Homebound program designed to provide services to persons who meet the eligibility criteria and who have sustained a traumatic brain injury and/or cervical spinal cord injury as a result of an external trauma.
