A Home Sharing Community
We can Create Home Together
Homesharing is simple: A home provider offers accommodation to a home seeker in exchange for an agreed level of support in the form of financial exchange, assistance with household tasks, or simple companionship. Home sharing is about building relationships, while also living in affordable housing. Home seekers and home providers mutually agree to live together.
The Home Share Program Provides:
A way for home seekers to find below market rent. The amount may be negotiated, when the home seeker and home provider agree to provide assistance with household tasks for reduced rent.
Safety and security that home seekers and providers are looking for. Both home seekers and providers are background checked, personal references are consulted and individuals are vetted by staff of the home share program. Our staff and qualified volunteers are trained to carefully screen each program applicant through interviewing, background checks, and personal references.
Information on fair housing laws, drafting a home share agreement, and more.
Additional income for the senior home provider to offset rising costs of property taxes, maintenance and upkeep.
Seniors opportunity to age in place by creating the circumstances needed to keep seniors living in their homes for as long as they can with a little help and additional income
Home Share benefits neighborhoods by making efficient use of existing housing stock, helping to preserve the fabric of the neighborhood and, in certain cases, helps lessen the need for costly chore/care services and long-term institutional care.
What Home Sharing Can Offer Our Community
The Home Share program recognizes the challenge of rising health care and housing costs and longer lives. We believe quality of life is greatly enhanced through countless emotional and physical benefits derived from home sharing. Those who home share grow older together, and instead of loneliness and isolation, find lasting companionship.
