Home Sharing is a residential option that provides safe, nurturing, community-based, shared living arrangements for adults with diverse abilities. The service is provided through Contractors, who welcome an individual into their home, offering a warm, inclusive environment and customized supports. Individuals live in unique and varied family care arrangements such as sharing a house, apartment or living in a suite within the home. This model of support creates opportunities for natural relationships to develop and promotes full citizenship of the individual through inclusion within their community. A Home Share Provider may assist with life skills, meal preparation, personal care, relationship building and accessing community resources. The key to a successful, long-term arrangement is matching individuals and Home Share Providers based on a variety of factors such as personality, lifestyle and interests.
Home Sharing offers individuals the opportunity to choose their ideal caregivers and determine the lifestyle and environment that best supports their unique preferences, needs, passions and pursuits.
What we look for in our Home Sharing Contractors:
- Commitment to the values and principles of inclusive community living
- Previous experience supporting an individual with a developmental disability
