Sharing Rooms and Making a Difference
Keen makes it easy
Everyone needs a hand-up and a helping hand. At different times of life we need and can offer different things. Keen is about that reciprocal exchange, giving what you can and getting what you need. Need a place to live and can help someone in need? Have extra room and want to make a difference in someone’s life? Find an opportunity on Keen and make a difference.
How does it work?
Hosts are people who have space to share in their home. Hosts are looking for help around the house or maybe just some company.
Guests are people who can offer company and help to Hosts. Guests are looking for affordable housing with friendly Hosts.
Keen connects Hosts with Guests to find a match that benefits both parties. Hosts help guests by providing a place to stay at a friendly price. Guests help Hosts by providing additional income and assisting with anything from taking out the trash to rides to the grocery store.
The living arrangement is handled professionally with a contract and a Keen Coach helps make sure that both parties are being treated fairly and that the situation is a win-win.
Making a real difference
Our vision is that by using the spaces and homes we have more efficiently we can make housing more affordable, provide additional income to those on a fixed budget, increase the ability of our guest and hosts to save for the future, reduce the demand for new construction of homes and apartments, increase companionship and a feeling of community, decrease loneliness, take care of our senior’s better and increase happiness through service to others. We call this our win-win-win-win difference.
All hosts and guests are screened by Keen, so you can be sure that you’re sharing space with people you can trust.
Keen helps process the payments and contract. We have those awkward conversations about loud music, dirty dishes or anything else so you don’t have to.
Guests and hosts help each other, forming a bond that transcends the tenant-landlord relationship.
