A non-relative has to live in your home for the entire year before you would be able to claim them as dependents, among other requirements.

No, the entire year.  See this IRS Publication 501 for the Qualifying Relative rules - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/publications/p501/ar02.html#en_US_2016_publink1000220954">https://www.irs.gov/pu...>
