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.

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.

Wright County
We are Rhonda and Roger Lemmon, and we are ready to invite a new member into our family. It is our hope that, by becoming Host Home providers, we would be able to encourage someone to promote their own best health, happiness, and fulfillment. Life experience has helped us discover more about our roles as teachers, mentors and people. This gives us confidence that we will be able to support our next resident to make healthy personal choices, further their independence, and enjoy their life to the fullest.
