Item Description

According to a recent HUD article, homesharing has reemerged as a strategy to cope with problems such as the rising cost of housing, inadequate supply in general and a lack of affordable housing in particular, stagnant incomes, and inadequate public resources.

For 29 years, Shared Housing Services’ unique Homesharing approach has helped community members in need, retain and find affordable housing. All our programs derive from this Homesharing model.

The Adult Homesharing Program pairs homeowners/renters in need of assistance to remain in their home, with home seekers looking for a safe and affordable place to live. We vet all participants with background checks, in-home visits, and in-depth interviews to ensure each match is beneficial to all parties.

Similarly, the Youth Host Home Program pairs youth and young adults with homeowners willing to provide mentorship. In partnership with other community organizations, we guide and help the young people to achieve their educational, employment, personal goals.

The Collegiate Homesharing Program is an innovative Homesharing Program that offers Pierce County residents the opportunity to help a currently enrolled college student obtain affordable housing by utilizing that ‘spare room’ in their home. This program offers homesharing matches based on lifestyles and personalities.

Thanks to your continued support, our programs play a vital role in helping Pierce County reduce and prevent homelessness. We appreciate your generous giving, which all goes to serve participants in all our programs.
