Top 3 Reasons to Become a Nonotuck Shared Living Provider

Build Meaningful Relationships!

The shared living philosophy is based on our belief that living together allows two people to share their lives in an open way that makes meaningful relationships possible. Through mutuality of love and respect, people with developmental and intellectual disabilities create rewarding and lasting relationships with shared living providers.

Make a Difference

Our shared living providers receive a generous stipend  to support them as they develop relationships with disabled community members in order to help them shine the brightest and be the best they can be! And when our friends and neighbors with developmental and intellectual disabilities are given opportunities for growth and connection, we believe our whole community is better for it! That means by becoming a part of Nonotuck, you are working to strengthen your community. Being a shared living provider is rewarding in many ways!  

Become Part of An Incredible Community.

At Nonotuck, we support our shared living providers through extensive training and ongoing support. When our shared living households succeed, we succeed! That means we are here to make sure that each member of a shared living household is empowered to make choices, feel heard, and be seen in the relationship.
