Our foundation has six large single family homes in Seattle, housing 50 men and women. We anticipate adding several homes and multi-family complexes this year.
We have separate homes for men and women. Our clients include the Veteran’s Administration, Department of Corrections, state prisons, private hospitals, the state ABHS hospital, King County Drug Court, LEAD, and local work release programs. All of our clients have drug addiction or housing insecurity issues. All of our clients are currently working a program with drug court, veterans organizations or are on community placement with Department of Corrections.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Sherri Candelario, Ph.D. is a pharmacologist from University of Washington Medical School and the founding patent counsel for numerous biotech companies.
Frank Candelario had a long career in international marketing and branding. Frank and Sherri combined their knowledge of medicine marketing and branding to provide superior housing for people in need of a shared housing model.
Both had first-hand experience with a family member who needed shared housing and witnessed common models for people in need of supportive housing.
Frank and Sherri said “we can do better”. We will own the real estate in great neighborhoods and provide a launching pad for people with housing needs. To afford housing in Seattle, Washington, with a median price of $780,000, they developed a model of charging by the bed. The outcome was superior housing, federal and state contracts and people regaining their lives.
As a result, they’ve designed a unique investment curriculum for shared housing opportunities. This roadmap helps students through the process of purchasing a home, gaining certification, helping marginalized people, and receiving a double to triple cash flow on their investment.
The Shared Housing Academy business formula shows students how to access a pot of government funding of over $29 billion.
Shared housing encompasses a variety of homes to include: Veterans homes, Student housing, Recovery homes, Foster kids aging out of the system, Golden girls’ and boys’, Special needs and autism, Temporary Workers, Re-entry from prison or justice involved, Corporate housing and Shared journey of any kind
Together, we teach and coach around the US on how to develop shared housing models for community health support.
Our goal is to use real estate to end housing insecurity. We have expertise in national standards, fair housing and how to teach people to live together in community.
We formed Kate’s House Foundation in 2016 and are the first homes in Washington state to be certified as Level II Medically Assisted Treatment homes by the Washington Affiliate of Quality Residences.
Sherri and Frank were founding members of the Washington state affiliate of the National Alliance of Recovery Residences (www.narronline.org) to bring national standards to Washington state in 2018. Sherri is on the Board of Directors. Frank inspects homes for WAQR for certification.
In 2019, WAQR advocated and passed state legislation that mandates all homes that receive state funds to house people in recovery or from the justice system meet national standards.
Our model is beautiful homes in safe, secure neighborhoods with community support. We have eliminated housing insecurity for some of the most vulnerable members of society.AT

This doesn’t surprise me one bit! Seeing y’all up there, representing real change for those that need it the most. I am personally a testament to the work/ethics/compassion/ morals that these 2 phenomenal humans put into each and every human that steps through any of the multiple front doors they offer! They have gone so far, as to create specialized home environments for everyone’s different needs ( and lets be honest, wer’e a needy bunch. They don’t believe one size fits all, and they have ensured that they have all staff in place to recognize needs immediately and then take action! Too many “transitional housing” programs do not even assist in transitioning to the next step, which is independence. I personally lived in the same Kate’s house, in the same bedroom for 18 months. It was the most normalizing, stabilizing and humanizing loving situation I could have ever imagined. Due to the foundation they created for me, as a felon who spent 4.5 yrs incarcerated, a launch pad to create my real life. I have started my own LLC, renting a legitmate place, have my license back and most important am a mother and a regular member of society that now votes!
