Another Alternative to Low-Income Housing
Home Sharing - Shared Living
For a growing number of persons faced with losing their independence and struggling to keep housing costs within their budget, shared housing is an affordable and viable alternative.

Homeowners:
  • Tired of living alone?
  • Feel safer with another person in your home?
  • Want some help with household chores?
  • Need help paying a mortgage or property taxes?

Tenants:
  • Looking for safe, decent, affordable housing?
  • Desire the companionship and security of living with another person?
  • Willing to do household chores for reduced rent?

A home sharer might be a senior citizen, a person with disabilities, a working professional, someone at-risk of homelessness, a single parent, an AIDS patient or simply a person wishing to share his or her life and home with others. For these people, shared housing offers companionship, affordable housing, security, mutual support and much more.

Shared living has been known to enhance the health and well-being of all people and allows people to remain independent in their home. Home Sharing also preserves neighborhoods, creates affordable housing and saves housing and healthcare dollars.

Shared housing programs fall into one of two categories:
  • Match-up programs help home providers find a compatible home seeker to pay rent or possibly provide services in exchange for a reduction in rent.
  • Shared living residences involve a number of people living cooperatively as an unrelated family in a large dwelling.
