Host Home Provider

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon


Host home providers offer a room in their home to an unaccompanied high school student who is struggling with housing instability. This is a longer-term commitment (6 months-3 years) to investing in a youth striving to finish high school but facing personal and systemic barriers. There are no parenting expectations of the home provider. We ask home providers to offer housing, food, and a caring adult presence.

Second Home students commit to staying on track to graduate, remaining drug- and alcohol-free, and meeting mutually agreed upon household expectations. Local municipal mediation programs provide services to build a rental agreement with both the home provider and the student. When a student moves on from the program they then have a rental history that a future landlord can reference.

Home providers are always needed in the school districts of Washington, Clackamas, and East Multnomah Counties.
