HostHome is turbo charging the informal hosting economy within the LGBT community. “We are already doing this! I don’t know another queer woman who hasn’t had a younger sibling on their sofa at one point or another.” (Ava) We are bringing this network above ground.
Looking at housing stability services, we see HostHome in a specific niche. From lease rentals, to section 8 housing, to transitional housing programs, to shelters, to motel stays, to informal couchsurfing, to living on the street; HostHome immediately houses folx, where traditional methods would leave us sitting on the waiting lists for shelters. Our goal is to build a user interface that gives the hosts control and finds better matches immediately.
