If you are interested in hosting a family traveling for a wish through the Open Homes platform, then you can sign up your listing here. At present, Open Homes is focused on supporting the following causes:
- Medical patients and caregivers traveling for treatment or who require a respite stay
- People displaced due to a natural disaster and first responders/relief workers deployed to respond to a disaster
- Refugees and asylum seekers
When you sign up for Open Homes, you can choose whether you would like to host one, two, or all of the above-mentioned groups.
You can choose whether to sign up an existing Airbnb listing or create a new listing just for Open Homes. If you choose to sign up an existing listing, you will manage your paid Airbnb as well as Open Homes stays from the same calendar.
The organizations that Open Homes partners with may have questions regarding the suitability of your listing for their guest. These partners will reach out before a stay via the message thread, if necessary. You can help answer common questions by including a detailed description of your space and the surrounding area when you sign up to Open Homes, as well as writing a complete profile for yourself.
