Services to Adult Care Homes

SACH has more than 27 years of expertise in helping adult care facilities meet licensure requirements, provide quality care and operate sustainable business. SACH training and curriculum is approved by Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) and is offered to both existing and new home operators. Courses are conducted in compliance with the Ohio licensure law.

Adult Care Facilities provide meals, personal care, socialization and safe housing for people who maybe either elderly, have physical and/or mental disabilities and who cannot fully care for themselves. There are more than 200 homes in the Greater Cleveland area and more than 700 homes throughout Ohio. Adult Care Facilities are licensed by the Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS). Partners in SACH’s ministry include such as the Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS), other pinnacle community organizations, ACF owners and operators, private individuals and congregations.


NEW SACH In-services

For Licensed Operators and their staff only! This is not intended for PHO’s (prospective home operators and their staff). SACH is introducing a new program for those that are already licensed and operating their adult care facilities. These in-services will provide the ongoing educational hours that you will need for re-licensure. We realize that it is difficult to run your homes and have to take an entire day away in order to maintain your continuing education. We will cover a variety of topics in order to keep you up-to-date and at the same time provide continuing educational hours. However you are more than welcome to come to the six (6) hour training as you have in the past. We are responding to your request, so you have options.


NEW SACH Forensic Population Training for ACFs

In order to meet the growing needs of the forensic mental health population, SACH is pleased to announce our pilot program is now an official SACH program due to the outstanding success. Locating housing is a major barrier for people with law enforcement situations: in particular those who can neither live independently due to mental illness/addiction nor access traditional housing due to their offense. Because placement transitionally or permanently in an adult care facility is an option, SACH is here to help ACFs provide safe and supportive housing for forensic population mental health consumers in Cuyahoga County.

Any interested ACF operator/staff licensed and in good standing and /or ACF application has been submitted for general ACF survey (must provide official letter from OhioMHAS of secure date of survey) in Cuyahoga County only, may apply to be included in the program. To get involved:
