Chosen Family Justice Legal Guides
CloseKnit is an organization serving youth and young adults under 25 who are facing housing instability in Minnesota and the people who care about them! Informal housing arrangements such as “couch-hopping” or “couch-surfing” can come with challenges – both financial and interpersonal. These guides were developed to help youth and hosts navigate the challenges of informal hosting arrangements. The guides explore topics including, but not limited to:
- Tips for developing a shared expectations agreement
- Options for chosen family hosting arrangements with minor youth
- Tips for deciding if you should continue hosting youth under the radar
