About the Company

ReloShare is an instant-booking and live-sourcing portal for corporate housing and hotels. In 2021, ReloShare focused on designing a product to meet the unique needs of government and nonprofit victim service providers with our dedicated Safe Stays by ReloShare hotel booking website.

Launched in June 2021, Safe Stays by ReloShare is a business-to-business hotel booking website for nonprofits and government agencies that streamlines alias hotel bookings for vulnerable populations with no credit card or ID requirement at check-in. This custom hotel booking site -- the only one of its kind -- provides social services agencies that serve vulnerable populations the ability to book accommodations at national hotel partners with complete anonymity via alias check-ins and no credit card or ID requirements. Rather than individual bills for each stay, ReloShare provides monthly consolidated billing, which allows agencies to redirect time saved to more important work like providing direct services. Safe Stays by ReloShare solves various challenges that have hampered the social sector for decades.
