How To Start A Group Home

Monday, December 04, 2017 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

“How to Start a Group Home” - FREE
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. This seminar is designed to give you basic knowledge of starting a group home and help you avoid many of the bureaucratic roadblocks and frustrations. The following will be covered:

• How to work with state and local governments
• How to find a suitable location and how to evaluate a house as a group home
• How to locate start-up money
• What to expect in the licensing and relicensing process
• Various inspections your group home will be subject to
• How to identify staff including your social worker partner
• How to work with the residents’ families and guardians
