Hey everyone, check out this opportunity to share YOUR home share story!
Request for Stories from Home Share Providers, People living in Home Share and their Families
As part of updating CLBC’s Home Share Handbook, the Home Sharing Handbook Working Group Committee has made an extensive revision of the various existing handbook materials, identified additional topics of importance that have surfaced in conjunction with the frequently asked questions about Home Sharing. The first draft of this project is to design a new resource handbook called an ‘Introduction to Home Sharing’ with specific go to references for Home Share Providers, People living in Home Share and for the persons family. Included in the content of this resource will be stories and videos about experiences in Home Sharing. These stories will invite enthusiasm and provide clear insight as to what Home Sharing exactly means.
If you are presently a Home Share Provider or a Person Living in Home Share or a family member, please share your stories! Your experiences with Home Sharing are valuable and important in understanding what Home Share truly means. Everyone’s successes tell a different story. We understand every person with diverse abilities assisted in Home Share are unique and come from different cultural backgrounds. The composition of the family of Home Share Providers varies as does living in rural regions.

It is with much sadness and heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear friend Mary Nicholas. Our friendship with Mary started 25 years ago and we have all been blessed to receive her kind and gentle guidance. She has made us better people. We will miss her dearly and will always remember her fondly. There will seldom be a spring breeze that won’t bring her gentle intention in its warm embrace.
