Why Open up a Group Home?

The demand for group homes is growing. Often, new group homes fill up as soon as they open. This trend is true for just about every type of group home.

On any given night, approximately 750,000 men, women, and children are homeless in the U.S.  Given the high demand, this is one of the few good businesses to start right now. 

People wanting to start their own group homes have so many barriers to overcome. First, there are many rules and regulations when starting a group home. It can all be so confusing. Do you register with the state or with your local government? Do you have to become certified? Is your home inspected? And, if so, who does this? It all seems so complicated and overwhelming. How do I get my EIN number ?

Besides you know that you must take good care of your residents. You just don't plunk them down in front of the TV. This leads to so many more questions ... Such as: What chores are suitable and how should you divide these up? What should you feed your residents? What skills training are best for your home? What do you do when you have an "incident" with a resident? How do you get referrals and how do you get paid? ... and so on. Like the legal issues, thinking about "day-to-day" issues can seem overwhelming, too.

One more thing. There is just not much information available on how to start a group home. What's available is expensive and incomplete. Even the expensive books and start up packets don't give you clear-cut procedures, they don't give you good advice and they don't tell you everything about running a 

group home. Because of all of these barriers, so many people dreaming all seems so hard and they can't get any good information. 

This doesn't have to happen to you. When you want your own group home, you can start with confidence and without anything stopping you.

Trust in Jones Help & Empower and we will show you how to start a group home from A to Z!
