    Default Problems With a Housemate in a Group Home

    What can the resident of a group home do if a new roommate is moved into the home, and is acting in a dangerous, unpredictable manner? The home manager has told the other residents to stay away from the new person, but that's difficult given that they have to share the common areas.

    Default Re: Problems With a Housemate in a Group Home

    If the house manager is not adequately dealing with the situation, then the other residents (or their families) need to take the issue to whomever supervises the manager.

    If any criminal acts occur, then those acts can be reported to the police. If there are credible threats, then it might be possible to take legal action -- but the place to start is with the management.

    If the company runs multiple homes, perhaps the other residents can request transfers.
