Adult Foster Care Homes provide room and board as well as supervision and minimal personal care to persons over the age of 18.  The State of Michigan licenses AFC homes.  Each AFC is different and it is wise to investigate the ones you are interested in.  Listings of AFC homes can be obtained through your local county Department of Human Services, Bureau of Regulatory Service (517) 373-3598.
