Host Homes

Individuals who need regular support and supervision may choose to live in a host home – a family or adult in the community who will share their home.  We’ve discovered that individuals enjoy living in a family setting that allows them to participate in activities and share responsibilities.

Host home providers (the family member or adult serving as the primary caretaker) provide guidance on daily living skills and encourage relationship building in addition to serving as a role model for community living. Host home providers receive regular support and guidance from Goodwill to ensure a positive experience for both providers and clients.

Our host home providers help residents with daily living activities, including:

  • Grooming and hygiene assistance
  • Providing healthy, balanced meals
  • Ensuring that prescribed medications are taken
  • Assistance in getting to medical appointments
  • Helping individuals participate in community activities
