Shared Living Provider Services - Nebraska

A Shared Living Provider (SLP)previously called Extended Family Homes (EFH) in Nebraska, and sometimes called a "Host Home" is a community-based living option. A contractor with CSN provides supports to a person who comes to live in their home, and the residence effectively becomes the person’s home. A type of shared living arrangement is established, with the person supported contributing to costs via a room and board payment. Additionally, the subcontractor is paid to support the person to live and become fully integrated into community life. Supports include formal training, based on the person’s identified goals, as well as development of interests and connections that enable the person to be a fully participating and contributing member of the community.
