vsftpd.conf/chroot/vsftpd.chroot_list issue

I have set up my vsftp to only allow a certain list of users to access directories higher than their home. This works fine, but I would like to set it so although they have access to / they still start in /home/username once they log into ftp. Is there a way to do this? I've searched and haven't found an answer.
