The two-day Green House Development Workshop is the first step in bringing Green House homes to your community.

Day 1 of the workshop is hosted by an operating Green House organization, and it is an opportunity to:

  • Understand the Green House values and essential practices, and explore how the model is reflected in various communities.
  • Review the growing evidence base, which shows positive financial, clinical, and quality of life outcomes.
  • Speak with leadership and staff from an operating Green House organization about their experiences.
  • Step inside a Green House home to experience the elements of real home, meaningful life, and empowered staff.
  • Get the latest from The Green House Project as a national initiative, including innovative tools and resources, policy impact, and growing momentum across the country.
  • Learn how you can take the next step toward bringing Green House homes to your community.

Day 2 of the workshop takes a deeper dive into the key factors that affect the financial viability of Green House homes. Our experts provide developers and potential project sponsors more details around the development process, including the following: 

  • Determining the optimal size for a project;
  • Site selection;
  • Design tips;
  • Working with state agencies on CON and licensing approvals; and
  • How to streamline the construction process. 

Also on tap for the second day are practical tips and lessons learned from both for-profit and non-profit organizations around the development of Green House homes.

There is a fee for day two of the program. If you are interested in registering for day two, please email Meg LaPorte at or call (240) 676-0610.
