Lifesharing Fair to showcase residential program for people with intellectual disability

 


The Allegheny County Lifesharing Coalition invites people diagnosed with an intellectual disability, their families, and anyone interested in becoming a provider family to the Lifesharing Information Fair.

The annual Fair, now in its fourth year, is on Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 6-8 p.m., hosted by Achieva at its office, 711 Bingham Street, South Side. Admission and parking are free.

This is an opportunity to learn more about Lifesharing, a residential service designed to provide care and support in a family home setting for someone with an intellectual disability.

People currently participating in the Lifesharing Program and their provider families will be in attendance. Representatives of provider agencies will present information regarding the benefits of being a Lifesharing participant and being a host home.

The Allegheny County Lifesharing Coalition includes representatives from the Department of Human Services Office of Intellectual Disability and nonprofit organizations who advocate for the Lifesharing program.

To register or for additional information, contact the DHS Office of Intellectual Disability at 412-253-1252.
