Over 37,500 residents of San Luis Obispo County are over 65 and 10,000 of these residents live alone
HomeShare helps match home providers (people with an extra room) with home seekers (people who need a room). It is a way to meet the housing challenges faced by seniors and others. It helps provide affordable housing with existing resource, allow for aging in place, build community and empower community members.
Over 60 HomeShare Programs have operated around the country since the 1970s and helped thousands of Americans find homes. HomeShare can help bridge the gap between needs and available resource. It can take many forms, including private spaces within homes. Sharing a kitchen may not be necessary.
We anticipate being ready to facilitate matches starting September 2016. We are currently recruiting home providers. If you are a person seeking a home, please check back with us in September.
