Home-sharing is a living situation in which an adult eligible for CLBC supports shares a home with a person contracted to provide support and assistance to them. Also known as shared living, host-family living or host services.
Vital Society contracts with CLBC to provide home-sharing support. We have the responsibility to approve home-sharing providers. Vital Society only approves those with the skills, disposition, and physical accommodation to provide high-quality home-sharing support to individuals-served.
Coordinators complete a rigorous and comprehensive assessment prior to approving any home-sharing provider. Approval does not necessarily guarantee that a contract will be established with the potential provider. Contracts may be established when the individual-served, their family, or support network members decide whether or not a potential candidate meets the individual’s needs and preferences for support. Vital Society home-sharing providers may support only one individual at any given time. Exceptions may be considered if beneficial to the first individual in the home.
CLBC Direct Home Share Providers
VITALS appreciates that Direct Home Share Providers are pre-approved by CLBC to have the skills and ability to provide home sharing services to their person served. With this understanding our goal is to make the transition to a Home Sharing Agency as straightforward as possible, while still meeting CARF requirements.
