Why is there no information available to hosts who are willing to open their homes to people evacuating the Carolinas in advance of Hurricane Florence???

I have never seen anything like it in Brazil, where I live, but I welcome your beautiful initiative. Good luck to all Americans. Instagram: @seuhost

Hello @Debbie100,

 

Lovely to meet you, it's wonderful to hear you want to help with this. 

 

I'm not sure if you know, Airbnb has a dedicated page set up for looking for / providing emergency shelter, called Open Homes. When you visit this page, you will see that there is an appeal open for urgent accomodation / relief for Hurricane Florence. 

 

I would recommend taking a look there.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Lizzie

I have opened my home and have evacuees coming. I appreciate that Airbnb does this and I’m happy to help, however Airbnb gets the good press and the hosts get nothing. It would be nice to get $100 credit or something for accepting evacuees.

I completely agree. They have zero skin in the game.
