Shared Living Services

Compassionate community members, and in some cases family members, open their hearts and homes to create a caring, inclusive, and supportive atmosphere where individuals thrive.

What is Shared Living?

At its core, Shared Living (also known as a Host Home) is a profoundly personal and meaningful arrangement. It's an opportunity for an individual to receive the support and services they need in the warm, welcoming environment of a private home. 

Shared Living is founded on the principles of natural support, life-sharing, and active community involvement. The Shared Living Provider serves as a guide and mentor, offering assistance in areas such as daily living, safety, community engagement, healthy living, and advocacy. 

Through Shared Living, individuals are able to truly thrive in a way that is centered around their unique needs and preferences. It's a powerful and empowering approach that provides a true sense of belonging and community.

Shared Living Providers don’t just make a living; they empower individuals to live their best life.

Shared Living is a form of community-based housing where caring community members, and in some cases family members, open their hearts and homes to provide support and a safe living environment to an individual. As a Shared Living Provider, you become a key part of this extraordinary support system while earning competitive compensation.
Shared Living can be an attractive option for individuals with disabilities who are interested in living in a community and are eligible for services. When considering Shared Living, it is essential for the individual and their support team to discuss what a good quality of life looks like for the individual, their preferences, their support needs, and their current and desired life experiences.
This presents an excellent opportunity for the team to use person-centered planning to ensure the individual's needs and preferences are taken into account and to help them achieve their goals and live a fulfilling life.
