Home-Sharing is a living arrangement of two or more unrelated people who share a home or apartment for their mutual benefit.  Each person has their own bedroom and possibly bathroom, but shares common living areas.

Home-Sharing benefits include:

  • ease of financial burdens
  • providing companionship
  • security for anyone afraid to be home alone
  • remain home and age-in-place for those who need basic assistance

SHARE is now accepting applications to help people identify, screen and thrive with housing partners.
