Host Homes should provide a private space (room, basement, mother-in-law suite, guest house) which is furnished with essentials (bed, linens, dresser etc). Host home environments should be safe and clean of clutter and allow for the Resident to be able to store groceries, prepare meals, utilize common spaces and laundry facilities. Residents should not be expected to contribute to utilities or internet costs. We also hope that Hosts will be inviting of their Resident to partake in meals, activities or conversation. These interactions are not required but will create a rich, comfortable experience for Host and Resident.
