What is the NSHRC?
The National Shared Housing Resource Center (NSHRC) is a network of independent non-profit homesharing programs across the United States. Our goals are to raise awareness of the benefits of homesharing, encourage best practices and cross learning among programs, and to foster the development of new homesharing programs.
What is Homesharing?
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.
In the U.S., some homeshare programs work in specific neighborhoods, others in much larger geographic areas. Some programs target specific populations, but most focus on matching older adults with younger homesharers. If you are looking for a housemate, visit the Program Directory which lists Homesharing programs by State.
Were you unable to attend our 4th Annual Evening of Storytelling? You can watch the Stories from the Heart show on our YouTube page at https://youtu.be/5vI6EIxXkGs through the end of the month. The evening included wonderful live music by The Brevity Thing and stories from Sue Schmidt, Kevin Gallagher and some of our homesharers on the theme “A Shot in the Arm.”
