Become a Shared Living Provider: Meet Robyn

By Sara Porcaro | May 18, 2018

Hello from Robyn! The Shared Living Program at Perspectives Corporation is looking for a person, couple, or family that lives in the Westerly area to open their home to this kind-hearted lady.

Robyn's an active and independent person that loves to spend time with her friends, family, and church community. She's a hard worker, both at her job and in events like Relay for Life, and she loves to lend a helping hand to those in need. Some of Robyn's goals are to learn better budgeting tips, make more plans with her friends, bowl with Special Olympics, and go on a Disney Cruise Line adventure!

What Is a Shared Living Arrangement?

Shared Living Arrangements is a program that gives individuals like Robyn the opportunity to live with an eligible SLA provider and enjoy all the benefits of a home environment.

In this program, the home provider is an advocate, friend, and mentor to an individual. They assist the individual with participation in community activities, learning new skills, developing friendships, and making choices that will lead to a satisfying, safe, and productive life.

Along with an awesome experience, SLA home providers earn a tax-free stipend of $20,800 annually, a room and board coverage of $6,000 annually, and access to respite.
