Supported Living


At Emmaus Homes, we know that the people we support want to be independent.
In order to do that, they need a home and a community that embraces their unique abilities.

The problem is it’s hard to live without support, which makes our clients feel frustrated, excluded, and powerless. We believe everyone deserves the resources needed to live independently.

We understand it’s tough to manage life alone, which is why for 125 years, as a faith-based organization, we have provided high-quality service caring for the whole person for their whole life.

Here’s how to work with us

Shared Living

What is Shared Living?

A Host Home or Shared Living is an arrangement where a client chooses to live with another individual, couple or family who provides support in their home.

After choosing shared living, Emmaus will work with the team to determine the types of supports desired. The individual with a disability moves in with the caregiver to share the home and receive supports.

Who Can Provide Shared Living?

Anyone who wants to share life with an individual with a disability. Single parents, empty nesters, families, etc…

There is an initial matching process to find a Host Home. Emmaus focuses on lifestyle preferences, cultural values, family/friend involvement, compatibility with animals and children, and more.

Once a match is found – visits, transition meetings, equipment needs, and modifications are scheduled if needed.
