Become a Host Family

host familyMake a difference in the life of someone with an intellectual disability!
Welcome a person with a disability into your home for short periods of time; usually one weekend every month. By providing respite to the natural family, host families offer new opportunities for the person who visits.

Thanks to host families, children and adults with disabilities enjoy time with another family and have more people in their life who know and care about them.

Each member of the host family gains a valuable insight about the gifts of someone who experiences life in a different way.

We offer…
• Information
• Confidential screening
• Careful matching
• Supporting throughout the match
• Financial honorarium

Our Goal: That Communities offer all people equal opportunity, full participation, respect and value as individuals.
