Host Home Program
You can help make home happen.
The Host Home Program matches LGBTQ young adults in need of housing with volunteers in the community. Those volunteer hosts provide housing, food, and mentorship to help the young adult achieve their goals. To find out more information about hosting download our Host Home Brochure.
Information for Hosts:
Our program is always looking for hosts to help make home happen.
Hosting is a big commitment, but a commitment that can have an even bigger impact on the life of a LGBTQ young adult.
Hosts are responsible for providing a private room, food, and mentorship for a period of up to one year. Beyond slight utility bill and grocery expense increases, hosts are never required to spend money on resources or services for the young adult in their home. The Host Home Program provides each young adult with program funds to help cover the costs of resources or services connected to helping them pursue their goals.
If you would like to become a host, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Hosts receive training and one-on-one support from the program throughout the time they are involved. You can learn more about our host training by viewing our Host Training Calendar.
