Home Sharing is a simple idea: a homeowner offers accommodation to a home seeker in exchange for an agreed level of support in the form of financial exchange, assistance with household tasks, or both.

The community is also a beneficiary of Home Sharing. Shared living makes efficient use of existing housing stock, helps preserve the fabric of the neighborhood and, in certain cases, helps to lessen the need for costly chore/care services and long term institutional care.

A home sharer (herein called a “home provider”) might be a senior citizen, a person with disabilities, a working professional, someone at-risk of homelessness, a single parent, or simply a person wishing to share his or her life and home with others. For these people, shared housing offers companionship, affordable housing, security, mutual support and much more.

Home Sharing programs can offer a more secure alternative to other roommate options. Many programs have staff who are trained to carefully screen each program applicant through interviewing, background checking, and personal references (National Home Sharing).

Our goal is to raise $22,000 by June 2018, with the primary expense being to hire a project manager/outreach specialist for 10 hrs/week until our official launch in July, and then a case manager for 10 hrs/week to begin matching home providers with home seekers and provide case management for matches. This initial $10,000 is crucial, as it will allow us to get the ball rolling with these first hires. 

We would be incredibly grateful to have your support, and we are very excited to continue this journey of finding creative solutions for addressing affordable housing here in Durham.

Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA) serves as the sponsoring agency for Home Share Durham.
