Life Sharing is a caring network of some 60 providers who support 65 individuals with intellectual disabilities by welcoming them into their homes to become a participating member of their family. Individuals seeking a Life Sharing arrangement come from many different settings and are funded by the Consolidated Waiver Program of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
Some individuals that come into our Life Sharing program have come from a residential campus setting or group home and are seeking a less-restrictive environment. Others live in foster care homes or at home with their biological family members who are no longer able to provide the necessary care to support their loved one.
The Life Sharing Through Family Living program supports the individualized needs of these individuals throughout the five-county area of Southeastern PA, with participants ranging in age from 16 to 90.
Recognizing that the family is the foundation of our society, individuals learn life skills, develop self-esteem, and learn to exist interdependently with others while reaching their highest potential possible.
