Westmoreland County LIFESHARING

Having a place to go is HOME.

Having someone to love is FAMILY.

Having both is A WONDERFUL LIFE!

Westmoreland County Lifesharing Coalition

Mission Statement:

To increase awareness, so that Lifesharing is a commonly recognized concept for providers, Supports Coordination Organizations, individuals and the community as a whole. We aim to encourage people to expand their family circle by inviting others to share their homes, their families and their lives.

Lifesharing enables individuals with a disability the opportunity to reside with an adult or family in their private home as a fully participating member of that family. It is also...

  • Living with and sharing life experiences with supportive persons who form a caring household.
  • Both a close personal relationship and a place to live.
  • Includes living with a companion or family who is trained and authorized to provide services that the person needs. 
  • Providing a supportive and caring home to someone while providing them what they need.
  • NOT a replacement for one’s biological family.
