Northcoast Homeshare

A1AA’s Northcoast Homeshare helps older adults find someone to share their home and continue to live in the community. We support both the home provider and the home seeker in finding a perfect match.

Homesharing is a living arrangement where two unrelated people share the homeowner’s dwelling. It matches people looking for housing with people that have some extra space in their home. Each person has their own private space while sharing certain common areas in exchange for rent, services, or both. No two homeshare situations are alike; each is tailored to the needs and desires of the individual people involved.

Northcoast Homeshare helps meet community housing needs and benefits renters and homeowners alike.  Our process includes an application, background and reference checks, an interview, inspection of the rental space, and follow-up after a match is made.
