Home Share Services

SACL contracts with paid community members to share their home and life with an individual who has a developmental disability. Home Sharing is for people who want to share a home with a family, couple or single person who will assist them to build relationships and access their community. The Home Share provider may also help with self-care, meal preparation and the development of other life skills.

In a Home Sharing situation, the person receiving support and the Home Share provider or family live as equal participants in the home, sharing a close relationship that supports inclusion, growth and opportunity for all. Our Home Shares provide opportunities for individuals to make friends, develop meaningful relationships and participate in the community all while maintaining strong connections with their families. All contracted Home Share providers must pass a thorough screening process.

If you are interested in learning more about Home Share living or becoming a Home Share provider, we would love to hear from you.
