From: Sarah Johnson “#1 Expert On Starting Halfway House Businesses”
If you want to start your own halfway house, read this entire page and take action right away. Here you'll find out how to start a successful halfway house business easily and quickly. If I could show you how to cover all bases before starting a profitable and caring halfway house, would you be interested in knowing how? If so, then please read on.
Starting a halfway house can be a rewarding way to make a living. With a halfway house, you have a chance to make a real difference in the lives of young adults, women and men needing to get a foothold on a normal existence. In return, you receive the satisfaction that you made a positive difference in their lives. When you like caring for people, then a halfway house business will be fun and a perfect fit for you.
The demand for halfway houses is growing. Often, new halfway houses fill up as soon as they open. This trend is true for just about every type of halfway house. For example, halfway houses for former inmates are much in demand. Why? This is because over the past 2 decades the prison population has grown dramatically. Today the total prison population is about 1.4 million. When inmates are released now, they are more institutionalized than ever because of longer jail terms and fewer early releases. This, in turn, means that more halfway houses are needed to help these former institutionalized inmates transition to normal life after release.
Besides former inmate halfway houses, the halfway houses for recovering addicts and alcoholics are growing as well. Parents and other family members are turning more and more to halfway houses to help their loved ones make the transition from institutionalized treatment to living at home again. These family members need the halfway houses because their busy schedules don't allow them to care for and watch their loved ones during this crucial transition.
Therefore, if you are looking to start a halfway house, this is a great
time to do it. The best news of all, with demand this strong, you can
make a reasonable living from a halfway house as well.
But here's the problem.
People wanting to start their own halfway houses have so many barriers to overcome. First, there are many rules and regulations when starting a halfway house. 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.
Besides the legal issues, 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.
The next barrier is the "hyped-up" income claims that you see out there. I've seen articles and books on the Internet saying that you'll make a small fortune owning a halfway house. While it's true that you can make a decent living from owning and running a halfway house, it's unlikely that you'll become a millionaire from it. So, if you see websites and advertisements claiming that you'll get rich quick from owning a halfway house... Just don't believe it.
One more thing. There is just not much information available on how to start a halfway house. 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 halfway house.
Because of all of these barriers, so many people dreaming of helping others through owning a halfway house just give up. They just don't start because it 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 halfway house, you can start with confidence and without anything stopping you.
