Experience the rewards of offering a nurturing and supportive family setting for individuals with disabilities.
What all host home providers have in common, is their commitment to opening their homes and hearts to welcome a person with disabilities into their “family”.
LSS Host home providers are compassionate, caring, and dedicated; they provide a nurturing environment that supports personal choice for an individual with disabilities. A host home provider may be an individual, a couple or a family with children.
