These supports are great alternatives to placing individuals in group home settings. Qualified individuals that wish to be with Professional Parents or in a Host Home will be placed in a home-like setting with a certified family. Host Home and Professional Parent families offer daily support, supervision, training, and activities for individuals in their care.
All NES Host Homes and Professional Parents go through a strenuous process to become certified. Prospective parents must pass a thorough background check, pass home inspections internally and by the State, provide outstanding recommendations, and meet high standards of excellence before being certified as a NES Host Home/Professional Parent.
