Alternative Family Living
Alternative Family Living (AFL) is an out-of-home setting where an adult with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities receives 24-hour care and lives in a private home environment with an individual or family. The AFL provider is responsible for addressing the care and habilitation needs of the participant, and assists the participant in developing life skills. Any AFL providing services to two or more adults requires a license (as defined by NC General Statues 122C-3 27G .5600F).
AFL providers operate as independent contractors, rather than employees. Requirements for AFL providers include, but are not limited to, a valid high school diploma (or equivalent) or higher, valid driver’s license, good driving record, satisfactory background review, and the ability to complete necessary training. Additionally, background checks will be completed on any individuals 18 or over that reside in the home of the AFL provider, and must have a satisfactory background check. To learn more about becoming an AFL provider with ACI, please contact Kia Dark at 910-763-7458 or via email at email@example.com or express interest online by using the link below.
