Partners4Housing has developed an innovative housing model for people with disabilities that involves families collaborating with other families to create a Shared Living solution.
Shared Living is when people with disabilities live together to share housing and support services. The support services that families desire include caregiving, supervision, shopping, cooking, cleaning, medication management, money management, planning social and recreational activities, transportation, representative payee services, benefits coordination, and more. We’ve heard from many families who are concerned about affordable housing, quality caregivers, personal safety, and loneliness and isolation. Finding compatible roommates and compatible families with whom to partner is a HUGE challenge. Most families understand that sharing the cost of housing and coordinated services is more economically viable and sustainable long-term.
The essence of our model is that compatible families commit to working together to identify and secure appropriate housing and services, and they collaborate to make the shared solution successful.
Partners4Housing’s model involves families collaborating with other families to create a Shared Living solution. Finding compatible roommates is a huge challenge. Finding compatible families who share vision and values is vital for success. Our Residential Assessment is the first step.
Once the assessment is completed, eligible families will be invited to our Roommate Matching Pool where they can search through profiles to find roommates and families with whom to partner to create a housing solution that meets the unique needs of their family members.
