Since CIS has no way of knowing if any place is truly safe for people with chemical injury, the owners have set up this separate Housing Announcement that will be posted on a regular basis. We are not trying to impede anyone’s ability to share information about housing with other members, only doing it in a format that will include the standard disclaimer that basically, your mileage may vary [YMMV]–and of course, we have no financial interest [NFI].

If you have an announcement about a place to rent or property for sale, or if you’re looking for a place, please send it to the owner address:


Please keep your announcement to 75 words or less. We will post it to the list every two weeks–more often if there are frequent changes.
