Adriane M.

Chief Talent Officer

“GoodLife direct care professionals, family teachers, and professional neighbors not only support individuals at home and in the community, but also act as advocates in communicating their needs, self expression and goals.”

Nancy H.


"One of my greatest joys is coming into a resident's home and seeing them smile at me. It means everything to know they trust me to take good care of them. To serve a purpose to someone is what is necessary in my life to be fulfilled."

"Working at GoodLife is far more than a job. It's more like a family where every day is enriching and rewarding. I love using my background as a teacher to help my friends learn new skills, but they teach me a lot too."

Shared Living

GoodLife's Professional Family Teaching Model

Shared Living (also known as GoodLife's Professional Family Teaching Model) is a living arrangement where an individual, couple, or family share their home with a person who has an intellectual or developmental disability.​ When an individual with I/DD experiences one-on-one care, respect, love, and learning in a consistent family-like environment, their quality of life improves—that's when we see everyone truly thrive.

Our Shared Living contractors (also known as Professional Family Teachers) are our program's most valuable resource! If you are interested in becoming a Professional Family Teacher, we'd love to hear from you!
