Host Home Program

Safe and stable housing improves youth physical and mental health, educational engagement, employment, and other quality of life determinants. Host Homes provide youth the stability they need to access care, reengage with school, seek employment, and gain the skills they need to transition to independent adulthood.

By partnering with A Family for Every Child, Host Homes make an enduring difference in the lives of our community’s youth.

Becoming a Host Home Provider


Host Home providers must:

  • Have an available, private bedroom in their home that contains a bed, window, and space for the youth to store their belongings.
  • Have at least one resident in the home who is 21 or older.
  • Pass a fingerprint-based background check.
  • Complete the Host Home onboarding process.
