Shared Housing Services

Founded in 1991, Shared Housing Services aims to prevent homelessness and foster independence by providing low-income people with innovative, affordable housing.  Through its Homesharing Program, the nonprofit matches elderly, disabled, and very low-income people in need of affordable housing with people willing to provide a private bedroom in their homes in exchange for rent and/or assistance.  The nonprofit also owns 12 units of housing that serve as transitional housing for low-income homeless families.
