Roommate/Housemate Matching Assistance

Code: BH-3900.7500

Programs that help people who need a shared housing arrangement identify others with whom they can share. Included are share-a-home programs which match homeowners and apartment dwellers who want to share their living facilities with compatible individuals who need a place to rent, some of whom may be willing to provide a service (such as cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, meal preparation, transportation or lawn care) in exchange for all or a portion of the rent. Many share-a-home programs are for older adults or people with disabilities and require that at least one of each matched pair qualify on this basis.
