Episode #18 marks the halfway point of our housing model series. Our guests have helped us understand the campus model (Episodes #13&#14), the group home model (Episodes #15&#16), and the host home model (Episode #17). This week we pause and reflect. Thus far, Kim has had 5  a-ha moments. 

  1. Utilize a variety of models rather than just one

  2. Organizations providing housing need to have business savvy

  3. The state you live in makes a BIG difference

  4. Our adult children might do better with another caregiver

  5. Money matters
