One of my friends is going through kind of a tough time with his family, and long story short, they've decided to make him move out in the next coming days/weeks (I don't know the whole story so I couldn't really say the long version). He texted me asking for a place to stay during the summer, probably not the whole time, but he might be house-hopping for a while and he wanted to ask me. I just briefly brought up the situation to my mom and when we know more details, we'll let my dad know.
In the meantime, I was wondering what I could say to my parents to convince them to let him stay at our house for a while (once again undetermined). We have the means to, but he has neither a job nor a car and doesn't have the means to get a car. He's a good friend though who's been going through a lot with his family lately, and I still would like to help him out.
On the other end of the deal is my actual friend. As previously mentioned, he doesn't have a job and he doesn't really have money to pay rent. What kind of rules should we set up for him to live with us and how might he be able to pay us back in some way (either helping out around the house, or monetarily, or something else).
Has anyone else done this before? Any suggestions are appreciated!
