The role of the new society for home sharing will include:
- Increased public awareness to attract the interest of potential home sharing providers.
- Recruitment of home sharing providers from rural and remote locations and culturally under-represented groups
- Increased networking, training, and education opportunities for home sharing providers.
- Finding solutions to the challenges of respite services
- Strengthening peer-support connections to help prevent isolation and home sharing provider burnout.
The new nonprofit society will maintain a board of directors that aims to bring together home sharing providers, people living in home share, CLBC and other stakeholders to continuously improve home sharing for everyone involved.
