- The online and zoom training event is approximately 20 hours of training: two full day training events and two interactive Q and A sessions. We follow a syllabus we created for training. This training is for educational purposes. Training is provided by Frank and Sherri Candelario, Ph.D. and members of their team. The bus Seattle symposium and bus tour event involves both live training from our team and a bus tour of our shared homes.
- The training is designed to introduce you to real estate concepts, purchasing, updating homes medical concepts related to substance use, marketing, fair housing protections, zoning, finding clients, getting funded and the rules of the national alliance of recovery residences. We follow a curriculum that we copyrighted and that is updated with current practices when needed.
- The training is based on our own personal experience with shared housing and the Kate’s House model we created. The training designed to give you the starting roadmap to a new way of real estate investment using a single-family home and housing people,
- One benefit of training is our private community network. We will add you to our private Facebook page, Shared Housing School with Frank and Sherri. This will provide a venue for you to interact with other student housing providers we have trained. If you choose to refund the training, we will remove you from our Facebook network.
- There is no guarantee that you will buy a house, obtain residents, and start your business with one weekend of training. We offer monthly zoom trainings through the paid membership site at www.frankandsherri.com to ask questions that are specific to you. We offer the first three months of the membership site for free to new students. We offer forms for email where you can ask us specific questions that are related to your specific circumstances.
- We offer a bus tour and symposium each year for intensive in-person training and a hands-on training at our shared homes in Seattle, Washington. It is important to attend the bus tour to understand how to put together a shared home. The bus tour, travel, lodging and live training are at your expense. We make a significant effort to keep expenses for the bus tour low so that you can attend the bus tour as it is a very important follow-up for many students.
- Members who start their shared housing business quickly typically have the right house ready to go, already are active real estate investors and are willing and able to put in the time that it takes to learn and practice a new strategy. This is not an overnight business.
- State and federal dollars may be available to pay for the room charges of certain populations. Depending on the population that you serve, you may be able to pay your mortgage and make a profit each month. There is no guarantee as to the startup time to obtain your first house contract or client for shared housing. The startup time is dependent upon how quickly you use the concepts taught in training and how you make use of the additional tools we provide.
- Many students house people in shared homes who have jobs. These clients can typically pay their room fee or have the fee paid by an agency. Others market themselves to agencies who have clients and funding. These concepts are taught in training. Both can lead to a successful shared home.
- The student agrees the not to use trade names, trademarks, copyrighted information or works, service names or service marks (the “IP”) including the marks “Shared Housing Solutions” and “Kate’s House Foundation.” We may give permission on a case-to-case basis for you to state that you were trained in the Kate’s House Foundation model.
