Home Share - Work at Home

Description:

Home Share providers welcome an individual(s) into their home and offer a warm and inclusive living environment. Both parties are matched according to strengths, needs, experience, interests, personalities and more. We are looking for individuals and families who are committed to the values and principles of community living and who wish to provide a home that supports a person’s needs, goals and dreams.
The Fort St John Association for Community Living (FSJACL) is an organization that provides a full spectrum of services from staffed residential support, home share, day programs, community inclusion and employment. Our vision is “People with Developmental Disabilities and Community, Meaningfully Connected – Everyone Belongs”.
The FSJACL is currently seeking a family or an individual who is interested in sharing their home and providing support for a young man who will be turning 19 in December of 2018. This male currently resides with a home share provider since the age of 3 and would now like to experience a new home and new opportunities in the community. This young man is very easy going, he does require some help with learning how to make simple meals and other related tasks, he is well groomed, friendly and has a good sense of right and wrong. He has a younger brother that is a large part of his life and would like regular visits with him to continue. This is a contracted position and will require an application process, home study, health and safety check along with training, a clear criminal record search and other applicable requirements.
This is a contract position and the successful applicant would have full access to support from The FSJACL including professionals in the community. The ideal person/family would be:
• Willing to welcome this young man as contributing member of the household
• Able to provide complete support for activities of daily living
• Able to help facilitate opportunities for the persons to be involved in the community
Financial Compensation is provided
