Sharing Rooms and Helping Each Other

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 with anything from taking out the trash to rides to the grocery store. Every match is different and the terms are negotiated before the Guest moves in. 

The living arrangement is handled professionally with a contract and treated as a lease. We make sure that both ends of the deal are held up for the duration of the stay and both parties feel like they are getting and giving what they agreed to.

Work Together With Your Community

Our vision is that we can create a new way of living that transcends the old way. We believe that people want to help each other and can elevate beyond the landlord-tenant relationship to something truly collaborative. 

Keen is...


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 manage the rent agreement. We have those awkward conversations about rent collection, loud music, or anything else so you don’t have to.


Guests and hosts help each other, forming a bond that transcends the tenant-landlord relationship.
