Home Sharing
 
Home Sharing is a living arrangement in which two or more unrelated people share a home or apartment. Each has his/her private room and shares the common living areas.

HIP Housing can facilitate two types of home sharing arrangements-rent or service exchange:

In a match arrangement, a home provider is matched with a home seeker who pays rent.         A service exchange, often involving seniors, entails a home seeker who agrees to provide services in lieu of rent.
       
 
Why Home Share?  
  • Home Sharing reduces costs
  • Promotes independence
  • Provides companionship and increased security for both home provider and home seeker
