Become a Shared Living provider to a person with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with support from Bethesda.

“Our family has had a wonderful experience as a Host Home provider for Charlie. Charlie has opened up and become much more independent and outgoing than he was in his prior group home setting. He loves playing with our three kids, listening to rock and roll, blowing bubbles, and playing with fire trucks. He also loves to go with our family to concerts, festivals, movies, shopping and restaurants.

“Becoming a Host Home provider has allowed me to stay home with our kids, and I have treasured this extra time with them. It has taught our kids about serving others, and they adore Charlie. They are eager to take turns holding his hand when we are out in the community or lending him a hand. Our family’s time with Charlie has been fun, educational and priceless.”

If your heart is big enough, your home will be, too.

Are you looking for an opportunity to respond to the calling of your heart to serve others? Does the idea of providing companionship, help and care to a person with intellectual and developmental disabilities tap into a passion deep within you? Would you welcome a chance to work from home and earn a professional, tax-free wage?

As a Christian organization that provides homes so that people with developmental disabilities can live the lives they want, Bethesda seeks people whose hearts prompt them to open their homes to others.
