Founders of Kate’s House Foundation and Shared Housing Solutions
Frank and Sherri are national leaders in shared housing and established the Kate’s House Foundation®️ of a shared home that is quickly becoming the standard for housing. They house people in recovery from substance use, foster adults, veterans, disadvantaged men and women, the justice involved and teens and women who experienced trafficking and expectant mothers. There are many groups of people who benefit from shared housing. We will explore the need in class.
Frank and Sherri began their mission to change how people are housed in the US in 2015 and created the Kate’s House model of shared housing in 2016. www.kateshousefoundation.org
Seven years ago, Frank and Sherri created a national model for shared housing using single-family home in expensive Seattle. Frank and Sherri found they could co-house eight or more people in one home, get paid by the bed and make two to three times the typical rent. Their model is compassionate housing. The Kate’s House shared housing model is recognized as one of a handful of successful models for accredited housing.
Frank and Sherri created a multi-million-dollar portfolio of single-family homes with mortgage and expenses paid by contracts, agencies and people who could afford to pay for their bed in a shared room. The fees received per home are often triple the normal market rent.
The federal government has billions of housing dollars for people in need. Frank and Sherri will show you how knowing national accreditation standards are the key for accessing funds.
Your investments aren’t just your future. They reflect your values. But so many investment opportunities aren’t consistent with your values. What if you could have both? Positive impact and positive cashflow?
Frank and Sherri can help you learn how to use real estate to build your community and financial legacy, while you build real wealth for yourself
Frank and Sherri can show you how you can invest in others who want to build a real estate portfolio for shared housing.
The secret is knowing the national accreditation standards so you can access federal funding for people in need. The U.S. government has billions of housing dollars for vulnerable populations. You can use that money to pay your mortgage and help people.
Yes You Can!

To make real change, that starts in the legislature. They helped form the Washington State affiliate (WAQRR) in 2017. WAQRR subscribes to national standards for sober homes created in 2011 by the national accreditation agency (NARR).
Sherri sits on the advisory board to the legislature. In this role they passed legislation that prevents grants and tax funding going to non-accredited homes. Recently, they won a grant to start a new recovery home. Their homes were the first Medically Assisted Treatment homes in Washington state.
Notably, they have spoken and trained people all over the country to copy their model of superior shared housing that is funded by government contracts.
They have trained 1000s of people in the US on their real estate model and are making societal change, one house at a time.
If your mission is to serve the greater good, starting and operating a nonprofit is a noble way to do just that. It is also another type of entity that real estate investors and business owners can use to protect their assets and save on their taxes while serving that greater good.
