About Us

Just Like Home is an independently owned and operated company that specializes in short-term housing.  We offer a comprehensive array of housing in various cities throughout the country, including the Washington DC metro areas, Boston, New York, Los Angeles/Beverly Hills and San Diego, California, South New Jersey, Cleveland and Berea Ohio. Just Like Home maintains an extensive inventory of short-term housing, including apartments, houses, extended-stay suites, homestays and roommate referral. We welcome business and medical professionals, scholars, fellows, researchers, interns, and students. Just Like Home has its headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, 10 minutes from our Nation’s capital, Washington, DC.

Our mission for international guests who choose our homestay or roommate options is two-fold. First, our goal is to provide exceptional, memorable home away from home experiences and accommodations for visitors to our areas. Second, we seek to promote educational and cultural experiences among our host families, visitors and partners, participating in our international program. Just Like Home is a member of the Association of International Educators (NAFSA) and various organizations, promoting worldwide understanding through cross-cultural exchange and immersion. We proudly serve international organizations, schools, students and all visitors to our service areas.

As a vehicle for cultural exchange and awareness, Just Like Home operates under the concept that cross-cultural experiences broaden the understanding among people around the world. Through our international program, we strive to build bridges of understanding among different cultures with the anticipation of a better and peaceful world. This is primarily achieved by providing the opportunity for international visitors to live with American host families. Furthermore, Just Like Home provides the support to help make the experience enjoyable for both host family and participants.
