What is homesharing?
- Homesharing is a simple idea where two or more people share a home for mutual benefit.
- A person offers a private bedroom and shared common space in exchange for rent, help around the home or a combination of the two.
- It differs from a typical roommate situation because, at its core, it is about two people helping each other.
- No two homesharing arrangements are alike. Each is tailored to the unique needs and interests of the people involved.
Our Screening & Matching Process
While people can find someone on their own, HomeShare Vermont has developed a comprehensive and client-driven screening & matching process over the past 35+ years to make the best in-home matches possible. Our screening process focuses on your safety and security. Each compatible match is unique and based upon the interests, needs, and lifestyles of the individuals involved. It is up to people in the program to decide who they want to live with. HomeShare staff is with you every step of the way. Learn More
