About Home Share

Home Share is a flexible residential option where an adult shares a home with a person, couple, or family, who provides them with ongoing and individualized support. These housing options are available to eligible adults through CLBC and can be tailored to support each individual’s unique needs and goals.


In some situations, the individual lives in a family home. In others, the Home Share provider and the supported individual live together as roommates in a cooperative relationship. Homes may be owned, rented, or leased by the Home Share provider or by the individual requiring support.


In some homes, the members of the household spend significant amounts of time together and are actively involved in one another’s daily activities. In other situations, the Home Sharing arrangement is characterized by more independent relationships.


Individuals tend to choose this option because it provides an ideal balance of support and independence. Individuals are able to select a Home Share provider and home environment that meet their unique goals and preferences. Support is flexible and evolves according to the changing needs of the individual. For some, Home Share is a stepping stone to greater independence, and or others, it is a long-term arrangement.

As a Home Share provider, what type of support would I need to provide?

Support varies based on the needs of the individual you are supporting. Some common Home Share supports include providing three healthy and nutritious meals each day, supporting the individual with cleaning and laundry, and ensuring they have their health needs met. Home Share Providers will work with their service user to create a person-centered support plan.
