Shared Living

In the Shared Living Model (also known as Professional Family Teaching Model), an individual lives with a carefully screened and trained host family in a nurturing home environment. This arrangement is similar to a private home experience to provide an individual with the most independence and best quality of life.

Day Services

Day Services are adult programs and activities that provide meaningful opportunities designed to enrich the lives of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Individuals enrolled in Day Services participate in a variety of activities at our centers and in the community and can enjoy learning opportunities such as daily-living skills, health and recreation programs, and volunteering opportunities.

GoodLife offers personalized‭, ‬community-based Day Services for persons within our Shared Living homes and for our residents at the Neighborhood Network‭.‬ In the Spring of 2023‭, ‬GoodLife’s Day Services will expand to serve individuals who are not current residents of the Neighborhood Network‭.‬

Family Teaching (Coming Soon: Spring of 2023!)

The Family Teaching Model uses a range of staffing strategies to accommodate the various support needs of people who live in the home. Most Family Teaching Model residences are duplexes where individuals with disabilities live on one side, and the Family Teacher lives on the other. In the Spring of 2023, GoodLife’s Family Teaching Model will expand to serve individuals in Sedgwick County.

- Joe, Neighborhood Network Resident

"The Neighborhood Network is one of the best programs I’ve ever lived in. One of the best things about it is the staff. They are all here for us and they help us get where we want to be. Everyone is caring and they help with problem solving when we have a bad day. I am blessed to wake up here every morning and know that I am around my number one family.
