In short multihome means more then one IP address for a endpoint.

So when two nodes are connected (SCTP association) then same association is having the endpoint connected via more then one path. Which gives internal redundancy to the system from failure from one path. Remember multihoming is maintained at SCTP level and has no relation with IP layer.

it is same as TCP.
But only difference is, SCTP is used for BULK transmission of data.
