Airbnb announced a strategic partnership with the Cancer Support Community. Through this collaboration, the Airbnb community will provide free housing for cancer patients and caregivers, provided they meet certain geographic and income criteria. Airbnb made the announcement at an event in New York organized by the Biden Cancer Initiative and featuring Vice President Joe Biden.
Airbnb is providing grant funding that will help relieve the financial burden of patients and their families in finding housing when traveling for treatment.
As CSC CEO Kim Thiboldeaux said in an Airbnb press release announcing the program, this is a major development for cancer patients:
“The Cancer Support Community fields thousands of calls from individuals who are struggling to cover the cost of traveling for treatments, scans, clinical trials, and other medically necessary care. This grant from Airbnb is a game-changer for these patients and caregivers — and you can hear the relief and gratitude in their voices as they learn about the free housing from the Airbnb community.”
