Why host a corpsmember?

Benefit to the Member Benefit to the Host
Place to recover during their off time Up to 1/4 of the member's monthly stipend
Safe space to store their belongings Invitation to SCC Supporter Events
Stronger sense of belonging in the community Connect to a young adult who is serving the local community
Reduced barriers to participation Play a vital role in helping to protect our public lands

As housing and rental prices continue to rise, it is becoming more challenging for our corpsmembers to secure stable living conditions throughout their terms. During the 2021 season, nearly 60% of our corpsmembers lived out of their cars or camped during their off days. While some of our corpsmembers prefer this lifestyle, having the option of stable housing for those who want it will help improve both member experience and retention rates.
