Linda and her husband, Vinton, are ready to welcome an individual into their home!

Linda is passionate about helping others and making a difference in their lives. She has almost 10 years of experience servicing as a CNA and caregiver.

Linda and Vinton live in a pet-free home with their five children, and Vinton works from home. They are ready to welcome a Host Homes mentee of any gender, though they would prefer a male mentee and a non-smoker. Their home includes 4.5 bedrooms, two living rooms, a big fenced-in backyard with a deck, and 2.5 bathrooms.

Their usual day includes getting the kids ready for school, a family dinner around 6:30 p.m., and a nightly prayer around 8:30 p.m. It’s a tradition Linda’s parents started when she was a child, so she loves passing it down to her kids. On weekends, the family loves doing fun activities together or going to church on Sundays. Linda also enjoys her family’s annual tradition of celebrating Christmas together.

In her free time, you can usually find Linda reading nonfiction books, working out, going for walks, listening to music, watching TV, and listening to motivational speakers. She loves spending her time caregiving for others. For her, it’s more than a job. It’s an opportunity to fill in the gap and provide love, care, and a safe environment for people who need it. Does Linda’s home sound like the perfect fit for you or someone you know? Reach out today! Call 515.238.3085 or email HostHome@LSIowa.org.

A message from Linda to her Host Homes mentee: “First, I will welcome you to my home, introduce you to my family (husband and children); give you a tour of our house and let you know you are part of the family. We are going to do our best to make sure you’re comfortable and well taken care of.”
