The concept has gelled into facilitating home sharing with people who like each other. Our strategy is to partner with congregations and community groups to create frequent occasions for their members to gather socially. Those gatherings are fertile ground for establishing healthy relationships that could lead to harmonious home sharing. If people are interested in sharing a home, we will stand by with services and support. No one should feel unsupported in a shared home environment.
There are s variety of ways to participate. Become a member of a lively social group and /or access our database of housing information.
