Together We Shine LLC; Matching Host Families and Homes with People with Disabilities

Meet the Founders of Together We Shine

Gabe and Heidi Founders of Togther We Shine LLC; Services that match People with Disabilities with Host Homes Families and Caregivers with Respite Care

We are Gabriel and Heidi Bernal.  We have 4 children, including our son Junior who has Down Sydrome, and who we adopted into our family six years ago. We have also been a host home family for adults with special needs for the past 5 years, and have loved it. Over the past five years I (Heidi) have worked with individuals with disabilities on many different occasions, serving the "Special Need Mutual" for five years, working and loving everyone that I was able to work with. Because of  the love Gabe and I have for those with disabilities, we have spent 17 years working with youth that have disabilities that ended up in the foster system


Not too long ago we started to look seriously at what options were out there for those that have disabilities when they become adults. There are some good providers out there but we wanted to see something different, something more personal where more time is spent to connect with clients. We wanted to get to know them, to provide better support for them and ultimately provide a better way of living through better host home matching.


We intend to stay a small provider to ensure that we are able to get to know each client personally. Doing things with them as often as possible. Our passion is to help clients experience a loving family setting where they can experience self-fulfillment and attainment for their goals


Our goal is to help individuals with disabilities get the care and attention they deserve and help host parents by compensating them 60% of the budget, far above what most providers will compensate. If you are looking for care or provide care, we look forward to working with you.
