Open Homes Open your heart and home to evacuees

Join the community of hosts who are donating their homes and providing emergency shelter to people affected by hurricanes, forest fires, flooding, and other disasters.
Let’s get started
Join thousands of fellow hosts for good.
1
Join the community
Begin by creating a verified Airbnb account or, for existing members, log in.
2
Sign up your home
If you already host on Airbnb, choose an existing listing, or create one specifically for the cause of your choice.
3
Help someone in need
Once your home is signed up, agency partners and verified account holders will be able to send requests to stay in your home.

If you have any further questions that aren’t covered by the information below or you’re involved with an organization and would like to explore a partnership, please reach out to us at welcome@airbnb.com. We’re happy to talk.
