Lifesharing Program

Lifesharing is an adult residential option offered as an alternative to community, independent, or supported living. Since 1985, KenCrest’s Lifesharing program has successfully brought more than 140 people with disabilities and Lifesharing families together in PA. Some of which have been together for over 30 years. We currently serve more than 50 people with developmental disabilities and 50 Lifesharing families in seven Pennsylvania counties: Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery, and Philadelphia.

Choosing Lifesharing

Lifesharing for adults with disabilities

Lifesharing creates new and enduring relationships that provide an ideal foundation for learning, encouraging self-esteem, and fostering interdependence.

Our program focuses on the growth and development of each person in Lifesharing. The Lifesharing family supports the person to achieve their fullest potential, according to their individual needs, while providing the community access and involvement required for success.

“Our story begins in 1990 when we heard about Lifesharing. Dan joined our family first. Things went well, and then Ted joined our family. Watching these two men flourish and grow has been exciting and rewarding. Little did we know that we would also be blessed…not only did Dan and Ted join our family, we also gained an extended family.”

-Cindy, Lifesharing family since 1992

“I love living in Lifesharing because I get to have dogs who sit on my lap and I get to go to fun places with Melissa, Grandmom, and John. I’m going to be an uncle as soon as Guy and Jill have this baby. We plan to visit Disney again.”
