Category Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Services  

Easterseals UCP is seeking people interested in becoming Alternative Family Living (AFL) Providers in Asheville, Waynesville, Hendersonville and surrounding areas. As an AFL provider, you will have an individual come to live with you who possesses intellectual developmental disabilities and/or possibly mental health challenges. Our supported individuals each have their own identities with varying levels of needs and we pride ourselves on connecting people with the “right fit”. As an AFL provider, you will offer a stable and caring home where they can live, grow and integrate into the community working toward goals of daily living skills/independence.
