Program Description

“In 1980, Kuhn founded the National Shared Housing Resource Center having experienced the benefits of homesharing in her own home for years. She passionately believed there must be more opportunities for intergenerational living and that seniors shouldn’t be isolated and alone or warehoused and forgotten.”

“Homesharing enables two or more unrelated people to share housing for their mutual benefit. A person offers a private bedroom and shared common area in exchange for rent, help around the house or a combination of the two. Every homesharing arrangement is unique. It’s about people helping people.”

“There’s really growing interest in homesharing where an older home owner who has an extra room. Maybe they are an empty nester and they're living alone, but they have an extra room or space in their home that they could run out. Well, it becomes a win-win situation."

“Home sharing can create supplemental income for the homeowner and affordable housing for their tenant.”
