In Lifesharing (also known as Family Living), individuals live with host families who have opened their home to provide supports and share their lives. The enduring relationships that are formed are an important part of developing life skills and self esteem, as well as a rich family, community and civic life. Individuals increase their skills in daily activities while engaging in a typical family life.
Lifesharing provides the opportunity for each person to grow and develop to their fullest potential. One or two individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities or those experiencing mental illness are matched with a host family and live with them in their home.

Host families provide comprehensive person-centered supports within their home. We provide training for all of our host families and our coordinators provide assistance with problem solving, resources and respite for the host family. All homes in our Lifesharing services are inspected and licensed annually.
