Home Share

What is Home Sharing?

Home Sharing enables adults with developmental disabilities to choose an environment that addresses their specific needs and desires. Each home sharing arrangement varies depending on the unique needs and lifestyle preferences of the individual. Home Sharing increases the opportunity for people to establish natural relationships and social connections within their community. Individuals might live with a family, roommate, couple, or in their own suite within a family home.

Being a Home Share Provider

Home Share Providers are people who have opened their home to provide support to an individual with a developmental disability. They come from a variety of backgrounds and represent the cultural and ethnic diversity that makes a community. Regardless of background, all Home Share Providers are committed to the principles of community living and strive to create an inclusive community for everyone. Depending on the needs and wishes of the individual, Home Share Providers can assist with relationship building, life skills, meal preparation, personal care, and community access. Kardel is committed to finding the best match possible. Some individuals have specific care providers in mind, while others require assistance to find a suitable match. The individual is able to choose a care provider who best suits their support needs and lifestyle preferences. All Home Share Providers undergo an extensive home study process. Only those who are committed to fostering a true home environment will be considered.
