[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle is partnering with Airbnb for a special opportunity to empower members to share their homes and meet travelers from around the world while earning supplemental income.

The League will work with Airbnb in the coming months to educate its community about responsible home sharing and how to become an Airbnb host. Supplemental income earned through hosting on Airbnb is one option for battling housing insecurity, particularly for seniors considering reverse mortgages and facing rising costs on fixed incomes.
