Become a Host Home Mentor

As a host home provider, you can help an individual with disabilities grow and live well.

Everyone deserves to live a full, independent life. It means living the life you choose and finding joy in every day. We believe the best place to do that is at home and in the community.

That’s where host home providers come in. Children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live with their host home provider. They become family. It’s why we call our host home providers Mentors. Because they do more than open their homes – they open their hearts and lives.

As a Mentor, you’ll have the chance to help another person grow and become more independent. As part of your family, they’ll build skills and form lasting relationships. You’ll be their advocate, friend, and family member.

Mentors are independent contractors and not employees of Sevita.
