Family Sharing, Inc. was founded in 2006 by Deborah Brinkley and Meneika Chandler on the principle of service. This principle is demonstrated in their commitment to assuring that every individual with intellectual disabilities is treated with dignity and respect and offered the same opportunities for choice, participation, safety, and community that are enjoyed by those without disabilities.
This principle is also demonstrated by their commitment to serving their staff and contracted direct care professionals. Contracted direct care professionals are offered quality training and staff support to enable them to provide superior care to the individual in their home and to meet their unique physical, medical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and social needs. Family Sharing employees enjoy a flexible, home-based work environment and the ability to be available for their family.
