Host Home Provider Waiver of Liability
The mission of Finally Family Homes (referred to in this document as “FFH”) is to care for youth aging out of foster care without a place to call home. We partner with these young adults to prepare them for lasting success by:
- Meeting immediate needs like food, clothing, and housing
- Providing help with life skills and support for educational advancement
- Building their own tiny homes alongside them while nurturing their financial development.
We hold this mission and our values to the utmost importance, and for this reason, our programs are subject to the observance of our organization’s rules and procedures. Any Host Home Provider who violates this agreement may be subject to removal from the program.
As a Host Home Provider for Finally Family Homes, I agree to the following.
I certify that the facts set forth in my application are true and complete to the best of my knowledge and authorize FFH to verify their accuracy and contact the references provided regarding personal, volunteer, and work information. I understand and agree that FFH retains the right to refuse any individual it feels would not serve the best interests of the program.
I am aware that participation as a Host Home Provider may lead to opportunities to participate in physical activities (for example, offering to help lift furniture when a youth moves in or out, carrying in groceries, etc.) and will require me to exercise reasonable care to avoid injury. I understand that participation in any physical activity is voluntary, acknowledge the hazards and potential dangers involved, and agree to accept any and all risks of personal injury and property damage.
As consideration for becoming a Host Home Provider with FFH, I hereby agree that I, and my assignees, heirs, guardians, and legal representatives will not make a claim against or sue FFH, its employees, agents, or contractors for injury or damage resulting from the negligence, whether passive or active, or other acts, however caused, by any of its officers, employees, agents, or contractors of FFH as a result of my participation. I hereby release and discharge FFH and its officers, employees, agents, and contractors from all actions, claims, or demands that I, my heirs, guardians, and legal representatives now have, or may have in the future, for injury or damage resulting from my participation in the project.
I understand that if I am injured while participating, I am not covered by FFH’s worker’s compensation program. I authorize FFH to seek emergency medical treatment on my behalf in case of injury, accident, or illness to me arising from my involvement as a Host Home Provider. I understand that I will be responsible for medical costs incurred by such accidents, illness, or injury.
By acknowledging this policy electronically, I acknowledge that I have read and fully understood the terms of this waiver and that I am voluntarily giving up substantial legal rights, including the right to sue Finally Family Homes for claims, known or unknown, arising out of my participation as a Host Home Provider.
