Start an HCL Home

If you or someone you know has the sensibility, the desire and the passion to start a Holistic Community Living Home, and you enjoy sustaining and supporting this unique population, through what could be the best years of their life –– we can help you every step of the way.

We have gone through the process. We have recognized the pitfalls. To establish a holistic residential home that serves the residents, the neighborhood, the staff and all the volunteers, there are many steps to be taken. There is the financial commitment, aspects of zoning, licensing, selecting an appropriate building and neighborhood, regulatory compliance, installing life safety systems, handicap requirements, finding the right kind of staff, and nurturing a holistic culture. We can expedite each of these stages with you.

The length of time it takes to set up a HCL Home depends on: neighborhood support, government support, funding, the housing market, your time and availability. The process can take from one year to a year and a half.

Think about it. What is life about if not to offer our work, our gifts, in service to a higher purpose? When we have this mindset, this attitude, it makes life so much richer and more rewarding. Just ask one of our staff members or volunteers.
