The purpose of this site is to provide information about Shared Living and to connect individuals with a need to providers who have a home to share.
Shared Living is a service option that matches a person with a developmental disability to a Shared Living Provider. Providers may be families, couples or individuals. The compatibility between the supported individual and the provider is key to the success of Shared Living.
Providers offer needed support to the person placed in their home and in return receive a stipend, companionship, and agency support.
This site has been created by three organizations that provide shared living services: HMEA, Nonotuck, and Alternatives. Our Placement Specialists have been working together for years to develop lasting relationships between the individual receiving support and the provider who shares their home. This site strengthens our communication and the match making process.
