Shared Living

The Arc of Opportunity’s Shared Living residential program matches adults with disabilities and those who have the heart to see them flourish in a family-based environment by becoming a Home Care Provider.   

By considering both the individual and the family opening their home’s hopes, aspiration, personal choices, lifestyle, and needs, our hope is to create an environment that honors both parties and will promote an atmosphere of growth and independence.  

After a successful pairing with an individual, the Home Care Provider and the man or woman will receive continual support from The Arc of Opportunity. The induvial with a disability receivings periodic visits from The Arc of Opportunity staff in regards to all their need including medical in needed. Home Care Providers will receive training on how to handle the unique situation of a person with a disability as well as financial compensation.

As Home Care Provider in the Shared Living Program, you will be caregiver, advocate, mentor, a friend that fosters a sense of independence through skill development and community integration.
