Owner & Operator of Overview Transitional Housing (Type II Residential Facilities that provide Housing and Supportive Services to women with Mental Health & Substance Use Disorders) & the Host of the Adult Group Home Startup Workshop.
I researched the business for over a year before making the decision to become a Home Operator.
I followed the rules as they were outlined, but failed my first survey. I reached out for assistance and was told to "Read the rules" --Insert, Are you serious face?!? OMG!!!! It was like being in a house of mirrors maze.
I hemorrhaged thousands of dollars as I navigated the politics of getting licensed, making my facility visible, keeping the lights on, water running, food in the fridge and networked to get residents.
Ultimately my devotion to help people and the fidelity seen in my residents propelled Overview Transitional Housing into success.
I created the Adult Group Home** Startup Workshop with the mindset to educate people on how to truly make an impact in the community while building a sustainable business.
