Shared Living and Adult Family Care
Our Adult Family Care and Shared Living programs place adults with developmental disabilities with host families trained to meet their individual needs.

Care giving in your home can be a very rewarding experience. We have care arrangements that have been in place for over twenty years. Caregivers often remark that the person receiving supports is like a member of their own family. In addition to being emotionally rewarding, caregivers are paid a daily stipend, which varies depending on the person’s needs, and receive a room and board payment.

People interested in becoming a care provider should contact Jared Golen at (508) 385-6019 or jgolen@kdc.org to begin the application process.

For more information, please read our brochure here.

Shared Living and Adult Family Care are funded by the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and Medicaid.

Supervised Living services provides 24/7 support to adults living together in a neighborhood group home of two-four people.

Foster care is the temporary or long term placement of a minor child in a non-relative’s family home. Reasons for placement include medical needs, developmental disabilities, or a history of abuse and neglect.
