Shared Living Program
About the Program
In Shared Living, a person, couple, or family share their home and life experiences with an individual to establish a mutually supportive relationship that offers the opportunity to live semi-independently. My Choice strives to match individuals and in-home mentors with similar interests and compatible personalities to create a positive and rewarding experience. In-home mentors are offered a monthly stipend that reflects the level of assistance and support for the individual, as well as ongoing support, training, and supervision.
Most Individuals in our Shared Living Program are looking for a long-term arrangement. Some individuals, however, seek a temporary placement to live independently and are candidates for our Transitional Living Program.
The length of time needed in this program varies with each individual. Some need only a year or two to achieve this goal, others prefer several years before moving out on their own. Once their goal of living independently is achieved, many individuals transition into our Individual Supports program, receiving minimal but consistent support to maintain their independence.
