Living Options

AiMHi has been a leader in providing Community Living Services in Prince George for over 65 years. We are proud to support all members of our community in living their best lives.

Supportive Housing

Home Living Options

AiMHi – Prince George Association for Community Living believes that all people have the right to live, grow up and find employment in their own community. Living in an AiMHi home is one of the options available for adults who have a developmental disability and children and youth with special needs.

Individuals who require minimal to considerable support to reside in the community may choose to live with 1–5 people in a house of their choice. Support is provided by employees 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.

Person Centered Service Plans are developed for each person. This is a clear statement of the goals which will be implemented and reviewed on a monthly basis.

Individuals may receive assistance with cooking, budgeting, personal care, laundry, daily living skills, support to attend school and employment. This service is designed to maximize their independence and participate as fully as possible in their home and in the community.

Full advantage is taken of social and recreational activities offered by the community. This includes bowling, swimming, bingo, movies, the theatre and concerts. Capabilities, needs and interests of each person direct the selection of activities.

Individuals 19 years and older are referred to Home Living Options by Community Living British Columbia and must be eligible for CLBC Services.

Children and Youth under 19 years of age are referred to services by Ministry of Children and Family Development and must be identified as having support needs.

Supported Living “Cluster”

Cluster services was developed in May 1999 to bridge the gap between supported living and life skills. Individuals live in their own apartments with support from employees 16 hours per day, 7 days a week (AiMHi provides support from employees for as many hours as needed by the people living in the Cluster), for such things as life skills, interpersonal skills, recreational opportunities, assistance in accessing the community, medication, and medical support.

Individuals in these services must be 19 or older, have some daily living skills, be able to demonstrate safe cooking skills and not require assistance between 11:00 p.m. at night and 7:00 a.m. in the morning, unless it is an emergency. Individuals will have the skills necessary to get along with others or the ability and willingness to work on acquiring these skills.

Individuals have the option of participating in group cluster activities and must be willing to work towards gaining independence by accepting training from AiMHi Cluster Employees. The Manager and Community Living Services Social Worker will determine a person’s eligibility for this Service.

Children’s Residence

Children’s Residence provides support and respite services for families of children up to the age of 19 who have support needs.

The residence is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by skilled and experienced AiMHi employees. The atmosphere resembles that of a home, including single bedrooms, a large kitchen/dining room, a large living room, a large fenced yard, and ample space for play activities.

We welcome your children to stay during the following times:

  • Parental relief
  • Emergencies
  • Holidays, except Christmas
  • Period of family adjustments
  • Educational reasons
  • Therapeutic reasons.

AiMHi owns and operates the Residence. The Ministry of Children and Family Development requires a support service agreement to be completed before a child can be cared for at the Residence.

The Ministry of Children and Family Development provides the operating budget and referrals for the residence and there may be a user fee. Based on availability there may be opportunity for private contracting.

For more information or to register, contact:

Children’s Residence
Phone: (250) 563-2260
A pre-admission meeting will be arranged and application forms and agreements are completed. Several short visits are arranged prior to the first overnight stay.


Home Sharing

Making a Difference in the life of an adult with developmental disability.

Home Sharing is a contracted service that provides adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to live in the community. People within a home not only share their home but also each other’s lives. When a decision is made by someone receiving support to choose the Home Sharing program, AiMHi’s role is to seek out the best possible Home Sharing Provider. We work with home sharing applicants and the person receiving support to ensure a good match.

As a Home Sharing Provider, you would meet the needs of a person with a developmental disability and celebrate their abilities with the belief that each person has their own strengths, needs and potential. Your role would be to support the person to maximize their potential, realize their dreams, and help them live a satisfying life that is inclusive of their family, friends and community. You would be responsible for the safety, support and general well-being of the person living with you. Home Sharing may include assistance in self-care, relationship-building, life skills, meal preparation and personal care, as well as the use of community resources, activities and services.

Contractors receive a fee for service, additional funds to be used for respite, and a contribution from the person supported to the monthly expenses of the home. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Home Sharing contractor, contact our Home Sharing Managers at AiMHi, 250-564-6408 or email

Karey’s Home Share Story

“I live a good life in Home Sharing. I get out and about almost every day. One of the highlights is I lost a lot of weight and became a lot healthier since I moved in. I started exercising and watched what I ate and my home share helped me stay on track. I like to be able travel with my Home Share family. I also like being able to take Carefree to go to church or my group. Sometimes my home share drives me to places, too.”

Kodi’s Home Share Story

“My name is Kodi. I like home sharing because I get to live on the farm. I like the ducks and horses. We get to go out back and build forts. We get to take our RC out back and build a track. We go camping, fishing, ice fishing and family holidays. I like being a part of the family and the family gathering and even birthday parties. I like that we get taken to town to get my truck fixed. These are some things I like about home sharing.”

Devins’s Home Share Story
