Shared Housing: Generate Cash Flow While Saving The World

In this episode of Anderson Business Advisors, Toby Mathis, Esq, speaks with Sherri and Frank Candelario, real estate investors who have turned the shady addiction recovery housing industry on its ear. Sherri and Frank became involved in the industry after their adopted daughter Kate developed substance abuse issues.

Frank and Sherri started Kate’s House Foundation, and have trained 1000s of people to duplicate the Kate’s House Model of Level II Medically Assisted Treatment homes in great neighborhoods like theirs in the Seattle area.

We’ve discussed opportunities like this in other episodes – this is a niche segment of real estate investing that can be both profitable and an incredible way to help individuals who are struggling get back on their feet.
