Shared Housing is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation that helps elderly and/or disabled adults remain in their homes by matching them with people who need a place to stay. These “homeseekers” provide light housekeeping and companionship. In exchange for their services, the homeowner provides free room and board. Shared Housing carefully screens applicants, facilitates appropriate matches, then formalizes each match in a rental contract.
