    As far as I know, every user has only one home dircetory. But a user can own as many other directories as you want. E.g. when the user is named "myuser", and you want to give him write permissions to a directory /home/otherdir, then use the command:

    mkdir /home/otherdir
    chown myuser /home/otherdir
