Narrative

The Arc of Opportunity’s Shared Living residential program pairs adults with disabilities with non-family members who have the desire, ability, and available accommodations in their home to support an individual as a Home Care Provider.

The staff at The Arc consider both the individual's and the Home Care Provider's aspirations, personal choices, lifestyle, and needs, to create an environment that respects both parties and will promote an atmosphere of comfort, growth, and independence.
