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 mother is a Host Home provider and I’ve helped her at her home with several individuals with varying disabilities. I am excited to get started supporting an individual to live as independently as possible in their new home. After seeing the great experience my mother has had, I am excited to make a career change and look forward to supporting an individual to have an improved quality of life with family style living.
