Hosts are individuals or families that open up a private room or additional dwelling unit (ADU) to a young person in need of temporary stable housing. They can act as mentors and support, but not parents, to the youth or young adult in their home. Room One offers support, guidance and mediation to Hosts as well as some financial assistance for the extra costs that may come with Hosting. Hosts can choose the preferred ages and duration of stay they are most comfortable hosting.
