Even as we observe social distancing to help keep our community safe, we need each other as much as ever! The HomeShare program is committed to the health and safety of our participants, while recognizing the continued need for the affordable housing and mutual help that shared living provides. We are continuing to accept new applications, and are available by phone or email to answer your questions.
At this time, we are conducting initial interviews by phone, and are encouraging potential matches to get to know one another remotely, through phone or video chat, before proceeding to a socially distant in-person meeting. We are offering home visits for prospective home providers in accordance with guidance from the governor’s office, and commit to observing measures, such as wearing masks at all times, to maximize participant safety.
We are still happy to answer questions about the program via phone or email, and are looking for innovative ways to serve our community during this challenging time.
The HomeShare program is a house-mate matching service that connects people who have space to rent in their homes with people in need of housing. Space may be offered in exchange for rent, services, or a combination of both.
Each participant undergoes thorough background and reference checks and creates a custom profile outlining their needs, preferences, and values in a shared living arrangement.
