Criteria for NSHRC Website Listing of Home Sharing Programs

The National Shared Housing Resource Center (NSHRC) is a clearinghouse of information for people looking to find a Home Sharing Program in their community. We are dedicated to expanding the availability of non-profit home sharing programs around the County.

Non-profit organizations can be added to the Directory if they meet the following criteria:

  • They are a non-profit 501(c)3 under IRS rules or operating under the umbrella of a non-profit corporation.
  • They are a homesharing match-up program with agency staff or volunteers who are trained to screen program applicants which may include a one-on one process of interviews, background and reference checks.
  • They offer a one-on-one matching service between people who have an extra room in their home with those who are looking for housing.
  • They help Home Sharing Matches define a Home Sharing Match agreement.
  • They provide follow-up support to Home Sharing Matches.
  • Their goals are consistent with the goals of NSHRC including, but not limited to, fair housing laws.
  • They pay an annual fee of $100.

In exchange NSHRC agrees to list them in the Program Directory page of NSHRC’s website.
