HOST Home Program

The HOST (Housing Opportunities Supporting Transition) Program provides temporary housing to youth, age 18 and older, in transition.  Volunteers in the community open their hearts and homes to these individuals in need.  HOST families must complete required background checks and attend HOST home training.  Each youth in the HOST program is assigned a Matthews House Transition Facilitator to help them to find employment, complete their education and learn independent living skills so that they can become self-sufficient.  HOST families can continue to be a support even after the youth transitions out of the HOST program.
