Do you have generosity in your heart and extra space in your home?

We Need Hosts!

Low income individuals and families may face a housing crisis due to eviction, job loss or family breakup. They may be forced to couch-surf or sleep in their cars or shelters. Temporarily moving in with a supportive host can give them time to regroup.

Be a Volunteer!

If you have one or more unused rooms in your house or apartment, you can volunteer as a Safe Time host. A local service organization would recommend a compatible client for you to read about, meet, and then welcome as your temporary guest.

Guest Referrals

We receive referrals from individuals and organizations for people who meet our criteria. Referrers vouch for the potential guests, help them complete the application, and maintain contact with guests to support them throughout their placement.

Safe for Hosts and Guests

Our prospective guests are at risk of losing their homes or may already be couch-surfing with relatives and friends. Our program only arranges placements where hosts will feel perfectly safe. Guests must be sober and healthy, with no violence in their lives. And, they must have a credible plan to achieve traditional housing within a small number of months.


When we have a client that matches your offering, you receive a thorough description with references. Next, you meet the potential guest twice, once at a coffee shop, and then again, on another day, at your home. 


Become a host! Enrich your life by helping the needy and also by helping solve a social problem.
