Homeshare Central Okanagan Wanted!


Interested in working with adults with developmental disabilities? Have a suite or an extra room where you live that you are hoping to rent?

Home sharing funding is individualized but can range from approx. $1900-2400+ /month.

We are looking for people wanting to become a Home Sharing provider (anywhere in the Okanagan). A Home Sharing provider supports persons with disabilities, welcoming them into their home and who will offer a warm and inclusive environment. The Home Sharing Provider will enter a contractual agreement with JHS and will receive rent and additional support funding linked to the individual served. In some situations the home sharing arrangement is characterized as a more independent relationship. Members of the home may generally go their own ways and come together at specific times or for specific purposes.

Our goal is to facilitate community inclusion by supporting our home share providers and the person served, to achieve greater autonomy and an enduring positive relationship.

Home Sharing Providers must be committed to the values and principles of CLBC and JHS and have an understanding of complex needs, such as mental health and substance use.

JHS will assist applicants through the required Home Sharing application requirements, established by CLBC:

A home study
Reference/background check
Criminal record check for working with vulnerable adults
Physician's certificate of good health
Valid driver's license
Valid First Aid w/ CPR

John Howard will provide ongoing training on JHS & CLBC policies, MANDT, MHFA, and other necessary certificates at no cost.
