Airbnb provides free temporary housing through March 25


KNOXVILLE - In response to continued need caused by severe weather in Tennessee, Airbnb’s Open Homes Program continues to be available through March 25. Ahead of this weekend’s severe weather alert, Airbnb is reminding Tennessee residents that its Open Homes Program is available for evacuees and relief workers deployed to the area.

Our goal is to ensure those able to open their homes, as well as anyone who is affected and in need of temporary accommodation, knows this program is an option.

The Open Homes Program was activated on March 1, 2019 and runs through March 25, 2019.

This concept began organically back in 2012 in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and has since grown into a global disaster response initiative that makes it easy for Airbnb hosts to provide space for people in need when disasters strike.

“Airbnb’s Open Homes Program continues to be activated for those affected by severe weather in Tennessee," said Kellie Bentz, Airbnb’s Head of Global Disaster Response and Relief. "Through the program, those in need of temporary accommodations can connect with Open Homes hosts in the area free of charge. We encourage hosts to open up their home and those who need housing, to take advantage of the program.”
