It’s All About Relationships

“It’s all about relationships” is the seemingly universal tagline for Lifesharing. We use it not only here at KenCrest but also for the State Lifesharing Coalition. Relationships are what it is all about. When we reach adulthood, we expect to make our own choices as to with whom we will live with and share our lives. Most often the agreement to share a home blossoms from a friendship. A good friendship is defined by someone who has similar interests to us, someone who we enjoy being with, who brings out the best in us, and is there for us when times are difficult. This is also what defines a good Lifesharing Provider.

It is to nlifesharing2016-1o surprise that in the work that we do at KenCrest, we form many close, lasting, and trusting relationships with the individuals we provide support to every day. Some of these relationships have morphed into friendships. From these friendships, many Lifesharing placements have been made with matches that seem to naturally happen between KenCrest staff and clients. Some have occurred due to a thoughtful planning process and a transition. Others have resulted due to a crisis, such as homelessness, where staff has jumped in like any good friend would, and welcomes the individual into their home. There are currently 16 Lifesharing Host Family Providers supported by KenCrest Lifesharing who are either former, or current employees. Several other individuals are still waiting to get into the Lifesharing program
