Available Host Home Providers

Host Homes are a great option for individuals looking for some independence in community with a healthy dose of family-style support. We carefully screen and select Host Home providers, all of whom are licensed foster care providers. Matches are based on mutual interests and compatibility. Our experienced team provides ongoing support and supervision — so everyone feels comfortable and supported.

A Host Home provider may be an individual, a couple or a family with children. What they all have in common is their commitment to opening their homes and hearts to welcome a person with disabilities into their family.

Dakota County
We are Bishe and Nedi, and we are blessed with a large, multi-level home in Rosemount, Minnesota. It is about 20 minutes south of the Twin Cities. We share this home with our two young boys, as well as Nedi's father, but we have room for more! Our family believes in the power of prayer, and it brings us much peace. We also believe in togetherness and the importance of self-care. We are here to support you with your dreams and goals.

My name is Brian Fangman, and I am opening my home in Kasson, Minnesota. We believe in kindness, hard work, and lending a helping hand to others. We have previously supported a person in our home, and we are looking forward to another chance to help someone experience a life that makes them happy. I am committed to working with you to understand your needs, help you define what other resources our community has to offer, and ensure that you will be set up for success!

We are Lisa and Mark Olson, and we are excited to open our home to some in need. Having both been involved in education, we are ready to open our home and support someone by each putting our best foot forward. We have the ability to support a person and wish to make the transition as easy as possible.
Hennepin County
We are sisters Tassa and Audrey Nelson, and we are happy to open our historic home in South Minneapolis to someone looking for stability and care. We can provide 24-hour care as we work opposite schedules. Our hope is to help somebody live their best life, and we are eager to open our home once again.

I believe that people can grow and thrive when they feel accepted and are treated well. I have worked with Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota for many years, providing opportunities for individuals to develop the skills and knowledge they need to thrive. I look forward to opening my home and am excited to support someone to achieve the goals that matter most to them.
Morrison County
I want to provide a home where Deaf or Hard of Hearing individuals are able to communicate in their native language. I don’t want them to suffer in a world that does not offer full access to communication.
Otter Tail County
We are Adam and Megan Hermanson, and we are opening our home in Parkers Prairie, Minnesota. We live in a tri-level home in a quiet neighborhood, with walking trails close by. We make a point to get together for family dinners, play games and just enjoy each other's company. We love to spend time outdoors, both in the warmer and winter months. We also enjoy reading in our free time. For more than decade, Megan has worked with adults with disabilities. It has prepared her to support an individual with all needs. We also feel our experience as parents has prepared us to open our hearts and home to give an individual the best care possible.
Otter Tail County
Our family hopes to welcome an adult into our home who wants to live with a family who will support them in achieving their goals and dreams.

We have cared for more than 80 children in our decade of foster parenting, and we are ready to support the physical, medical and emotional needs of any child who needs a loving home.
Ramsey County
A couple of ways that my family shows that we care are through respect, communication, listening to each other and sharing the things we have. But the most important thing is love! No matter who comes to our home, we will embrace and include this person in our family.
Ramsey County
My wife and I began this journey of helping those in need years ago, and I decided to continue this work after my wife passed. Supporting people with disabilities has been a part of my life for the past 10 years. I hope to share my experiences, listen with full intent, and provide a comfortable stability to someone who wishes to learn and grow.   
Todd County
It does not take much to make us happy. We have a lot of joy to share — it’s what makes us happy, and we look forward to sharing it with you! Family is very important to us, and we would love the chance to open our home to someone new so they could experience the support, encouragement and joy our family has to offer.
Wright County
The primary way we show we care is by meeting the basic needs of our kids and showing them love every chance we can. We hope that a new person in our home will become a part of our family and share this wonderful journey with us.
Wright County
We are Alvin and Sophie. We share our home with our two children, our teenage son and our preteen daughter. As a family, we are very caring, loving and flexible. We practice empathy by always trying to put ourselves in other peoples’ situations.
