Mercer Residential Services owns and operates an eight-bed group home in Celina, the Wayne Street Home. This home is an Intermediate Care Facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID). We manage the Thomas Edison Group Home, also an eight-bed home located in Van Wert. These homes provide 24 hour staffing 7 days a week. We offer individualized training based on the needs and desires of each person in the area including but not limited to daily living skills, academic functions, human sexuality, and life safety skills. We provide Person Centered supports and believe in the power of self-determination along with self-advocacy.
We strive to make inclusion a reality for the individuals we serve. Our purpose is to maximize each individual’s potential by providing intensive real life learning opportunities. This is accomplished by having the same expectations for our consumers as we have for ourselves. Consumers participate in normal everyday activities such as performing hygiene tasks, going to work, preparing meals, grocery shopping, visiting friends, performing household chores, maintaining finances or enjoying leisure time activities individually or in small groups.
