  • Basic and helpful for beginners

    Very brief and fundamentally basic book, but really stresses the key steps in the process of creating a group home. If are thinking of opening your very first group home or are purely interested in the basic process, this book is a great introduction.

  • Some good info

    I feel the book was very basic . My biggest take away from the book was to hire a consult. I did visit her site and her documents are expensive as well . I wish I had a book that was state specific, in my state I have to have a location when applying for licensing .

    • Not worth the money!

      Save your $14 and buy a book with some substance. This book is so tiny it is laughable. The index with the licensing bodies for group homes in all 50 states is literally half the book. This โ€œbookโ€ is just bait for the authorโ€™s consulting business, which you will sorely need if this is all you have to go on.

    • Good read

      This book provided a general overview of group home ownership. While the focus was on foster care type of group home, most of the information could be applied to adult group homes as well.

    • Its a good cheap intro book for someone brand new to the subject.

      Not a long book but worth the money if you are new to the subject and need some basic info. Best thing is its written by someone who started from scratch so its helpful for someone with no idea how to start. Points out some errors newbies can try to aviod.
