From Wikipedia:
A private residence designed or converted to serve as a home for unrelated persons who share a common characteristic. Usually designed for those in need of social assistance, and who are usually deemed incapable of living alone or without proper supervision.
People who live in such a group home may be developmentally disabled, recovering from alcohol or drug addiction, abused or neglected youths, youths with behavioral or emotional problems, and/or youths with criminal records.

In a group home residents usually are encouraged or required to take an active role in the maintenance of the household, such as by performing chores or helping to manage a budget. In most countries.
There are typically from 3 to 16 residents, as well as a resident manager or service staff. Residents may have their own room or share rooms, and share facilities such as laundry, bathroom, kitchen and common living areas. The opening of group homes in neighborhoods is occasionally opposed by residents, who fear that it will lead to a rise in crime and/or a drop in property values.

A group home can also refer to family homes in which children and youth of the foster care system are placed until foster families are found for them.

Perhaps the largest group of group homes falls under the heading of residential care homes for seniors. Not to be confused with any other types of homes, group homes for seniors meet the general definition of a "group home": a special group of individuals living in a family or community setting generally with the aid of a caregiver.
