Shared Housing


Home Sharing is a living arrangement between unrelated people who agree to share a home. Each person has his or her own living space, and they share common areas such as the kitchen.

Elders who would like to remain in their homes might turn to home sharing for economic reasons as well as for companionship.

Home Share Now and HomeShare Vermont are two nonprofit organizations that match people to create home shares. These organizations conduct extensive interviewing and background searches before making any matches, and they continue to work with the matches to ensure they are a success.
