Job Description


In 1967, with cooperation from The Resources Exchange and the Arc of the Pikes Peak Region, the Cheyenne Foundation was created. This organization was the first residential training center for adults with developmental disabilities in Colorado Springs. In March of 1971, the Board of Directors purchased the 16-acre McLaughlin Lodge in Manitou Springs Colorado to allow for expansion of the agency.  With this property, a pilot project was established to demonstrate that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) could live independently in cabins with 24/7 staff care.  Here, they developed activities of daily living and job training. On April 1, 1971, the Board of Directors changed the name to Cheyenne Village Inc. and became the first licensed provider approved service agency in the state of Colorado. Since that time, we have grown tremendously, serving individuals throughout El Paso County in various setting types, which include; Host Homes, independent apartment living, and nine staffed Cheyenne Village-owned homes. Our humble beginnings have evolved into one of the largest residential providers in Colorado Springs.  


A Host Home Provider is an individual or family who wants to make a difference in the life of an adult with IDD while having the satisfaction of owning their own business.  Host Home Providers welcome a person with IDD into their lives and home to become part of their family and provide the support and companionship they need to thrive.  With the support of Cheyenne Village staff and other human services professionals, Host Home Providers become trusted caregivers, friends and advocates for the individual  that lives with them.

Cheyenne Village is looking for Host Home Providers with a wide range of background and experience including IDD and Mental Health.  Host home providers can be empty nesters looking for companionship, retirees looking for extra income, and a way to give back or social service professionals with experience caring for adults with IDD that would like to have their own business and work from home.

A Host Home Provider must be 21 years of age or older, pass a criminal background and driving check, obtain Host Home insurance, have homeowner or renter's insurance, auto insurance and a business trade name registered with the State of Colorado.

As a Host Home Provider you can earn between $2,346 -$6,543 per month depending on the needs of the individual you support.
