Successful new business owners are well informed from the beginning! They know the startup process, their industry, and the market. The idea of a group home is unique. For a specific population, it provides the comfort and support of a homelike environment. More importantly, it assists residents with the use of available social programs and services. These homes offer shelter for people who years ago, would have found themselves homeless or in a state-run institution with limited services.
