Community Need

HomeShare Infograph

Program Model

Homesharing is a simple idea where two or more people share a home to their mutual benefit. 
We believe that we will most likely be pairing families in poverty from Stanwood with Camano Island seniors who are trying to age-in-place. However, we want to help make housing arrangements for anyone who would benefit from extra income, affordable rent, help around the house and/or the security and safety of not living alone.

The Community Resource Center will play a supportive role throughout the HomeShare process for individuals and families:

  • Help initiate matches with a thorough screening process including background checks, in-person interviews, and home visits.
  • Provide guidance and assistance to help matches create a HomeShare Agreement that works for everyone.
  • Provide ongoing support through 30, 60 & 90-day check-ins, as well as mediation services if needed.
