Shared Living Arrangements


Shared Living Arrangements provide the opportunity for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities to live with an eligible SLA family and enjoy all the benefits of living in a family environment.

The SLA family's role entails that of an advocate, friend, mentor and support provider. 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 for the supported individual.

The SLA family is also responsible for the provision of personal care, meals, transportation and other needs of the supported individual such as assistance with laundry, shopping, paying bills, and other day-to-day tasks.

Home Providers

To become a Shared Living Home Provider, a family must meet the requirements of the RI BHDDH Eligibility Policy for Residential Services and complete the SLA application process.

Parents of an individual with an intellectual or developmental disability are not eligible to be caretakers in the Shared Living Program but non-legally responsible, qualified family members of the supported individual may be eligible under the terms of the Kinship Care policy.
