Ohio Shared Living is often called OSL for short. It provides an option for someone with a developmental disability to get the support they need while living with a reimbursed caregiver.
Caregivers make long-term commitments to sharing a home, helping with daily routines, and inviting someone with a developmental disability to be part of their family, resulting in lifelong relationships. OSL caregivers support people with developmental disabilities in a home setting, either the home of the live-in caregiver or the home of the person accessing services.
Good Works Farm assists our OSL clients and providers by providing training, guidance, resources, and support.
