The SF LGBT Center is committed to the success of the Host-Guest relationship. SF LGBT staff has designed a program that will enable Host-Guest relationships to overall be positive ones. When conflict does arise, SF LGBT Center asks that both Hosts and Guests engage in direct and respectful conversation to come to a resolution. If additional support is needed, the Host Homes Coordinator is readily available to assist in conflict mediation and resolution.
In the case that all attempts at conflict resolution are made and the Host-Guest relationship continues to suffer, the SF LGBT Center will work to place a Guest in a new host home. Given that the Host Homes Program is voluntary, and that Hosts and Guests are entering into it on a voluntary basis, any party may end their participation at any time. In the event of an early end to program participation, we ask Hosts to give SF LGBT Center staff two weeks to work to identity another living situation for the Guest.
