Increasing housing costs can present a significant challenge to older Americans, either as they search for affordable housing, or seek a means to remain in their own long-time homes. Homesharing not only helps seniors financially, it also decreases social isolation, which in turn, has psychological and physical benefits.
SeniorHomeshares.com facilitates the Golden Girls! Senior Homeshares is a national non-profit. Our free online service, SeniorHomeshares.com, matches seniors who have extra room in their homes (such as empty nesters, widows/widowers) with seniors in search of safe, affordable housing. Seniors complete a profile including basic information about property amenities, rent/budget, geography and housemate preferences. Our algorithm matches the profiles and presents a list of potential housemates to members, who can exchange messages securely within the app.
Main target group: Older people in general
Desired outcome for older people:
