SHARED LIVING PROVIDER
Minute Man Arc advocates for adults with developmental disabilities to live in the least restrictive environments possible. Through the Shared Living program, caregivers welcome into their homes an individual with developmental disabilities who becomes part of their life, family and community. Caregivers are selected specifically to help individuals learn, grow and thrive as healthy, active, social adults. There is a thorough selection and vetting process to ensure the best possible match for the individual and the caregiver, resulting in the best possibility for long-term success.
Shared Living caregivers do not replace the individual’s family; rather, they play the role of extended family and expose the individual to a new group of friends while fully integrating them into their family unit.
