Altrus Inc. is one of Georgia’s most respected Alternative Living Service providers. Altrus is a leader in the assisted living industry, providing services in 70 Georgia counties through our contractual relationship with approximately 300 family model homes.   We also maintain ownership and management of six residential care homes across the central and southeastern areas of Georgia.  In addition, Altrus was approved by Georgia’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) to provide Community Residential Alternative (CRA) Services in a Host Home/Life Sharing model. In this model, individuals with developmental disabilities are able to live and share life experiences with supportive people who form a caring family and household.  We have DD host homes throughout Region and 5 and are growing into Regions 1, 2 and 6.  You may view profiles of many of our host homes at this link.

Since 1989, the mission of Altrus, Inc. has been to provide friendly residential alternatives to institutions of individuals with disabilities. The values of Altrus are that all individuals deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and should have the freedom to choose where and how they receive services in the community. The owners share over 150 years of experience in the industry and are strong advocates for home and community based services, Medicaid waivers, and Olmstead initiatives.  For over 23 years, we have provided community based services to individuals throughout Georgia of every demographic population. Every day, our staff are working to provide individuals with good wholesome community placements and thereby prevent institutional placement.

We go out of our way to ensure 100% customer satisfaction and take the time to listen to the needs of our residents, providing them with the right assisted living home for them. View some of our client testimonials by clicking here.
