Living Alternatives

The Homeshare Program is an alternate residential option. It offers people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live within a private family setting. Individuals wants and needs are matched to families abilities to provide care. Families interested in becoming Homeshare Providers will be required to complete a series of in-home visits with the Homeshare Coordinator as well as all necessary paperwork including a police reference check. Homeshare families will receive training, remuneration, respite and support.
