We’ve formed a partnership with Airbnb to provide a limited number of SEIU-UHW members in good standing no-cost lodgings so we can self-isolate between shifts to protect our loved ones from exposure to infection.
To qualify for this Airbnb Open House Program you must be (1) 18 years of age; (2) able to live independently without supervision or assistance; (3) able and willing to pay for your basic nutritional, medical, and other needs during your stay.
Eligible guests include any healthcare workers who are actively providing care for COVID-19 patients, have not contracted COVID-19, and who meet any of the following criteria:
- Personally choosing to voluntarily distance yourself from family and friends
- Working in extended shifts and requiring housing in close proximity to your workplace
- Providing assistance in a location that is not in the same vicinity of your habitual residence.
Our SEIU-UHW Temporary Housing Committee will review applications as they come in and will make a decision as soon as possible. You will then receive an email notification along with further instructions.
