About Kamers met AandachtWe are looking for people who would like to rent out a room to young people aged 18 -23 years. Living on their own may still be a step too far. They need support. They need a room with attention!
When you've only just become self-reliant, you still need help from family and friends. But what if you cannot access that social safety net and you don't have a trusted place to return to? The Rooms with Attention Foundation is a non-profit organization with the aim of helping vulnerable young people on their way to independence. That is why we are looking for people who want to rent out a room to young people aged 18-23 years. They are ready to live on their own, but still need extra help, they need your room and your attention!
The foundation makes a well-considered match between a host and a young person. The host has the flexibility to choose how much attention he/she wants to offer. The coordinator will ensure that both parties are appropriately safeguarded.
Maybe you'd like that a young person joins you for dinner now and then? Or exercise together? You may want to help with the administration? Some youths are willing to return the favour by doing various chores.
It doesn't matter how old you are. Any living space - with families or singles, student houses, guest houses or living groups - can become a Room with Attention. If you rent yourself, you can get permission to participate in this project without losing your housing allowance. In order to create a stable environment, we will require that you rent out the room for at least one year (maximum 5 years).
For more information about registering as a host, an online information meeting can be attended.
If a young person and a host are matched and enter into a contract, the coordinator of the Rooms with Attention is involved throughout the rental period and available for questions and guidance of the host.
