HOME SHARES
 

The Home Share program is a residential option in which an adult with a developmental disability shares a home with someone who is contracted to provide ongoing, individualized support. For some, this is a step towards greater independence, while for others it is a lifelong living arrangement. The person-centered nature of the program allows individuals to select a home share provider and home environment that meets their unique goals and preferences. Support is flexible, and evolves according to the individuals’ changing needs.
