Shared Living

Our Clients Thrive With Shared Living Providers

Over 40 of our clients — children as well as adults — choose to live on a long-term basis with a caring provider, a program also known as Shared Living or Adult Family Living. We recruit, screen and train our providers. Then, we place clients in their homes and monitor the living arrangements to ensure we’ve made a good match. Some of our clients have lived with the same family for decades and call them “Mom” and “Dad.”




Interested In Becoming a Shared Living Provider

OVRS looks for dedicated, highly trained, compassionate, and knowledgeable individuals committed to providing a loving, nurturing, and supportive family-like home environment while ensuring health, safety, choice and trust, and most importantly a sense of belonging.   As the State of Ohio moves away from Independent Providers, we welcome the opportunity to work with those current providers needing to contract with an agency to continue to provide services to their current individuals.
