Many of you have read about SHARE, a new housing program available to older adults in Adams County. SHARE is a Shared Housing Match-up Pilot Program, designed to help older adults age in place, while offering affordable housing to other adults 18 and over. In this program, unrelated individuals share a home to their mutual benefit.
A homeowner (host) offers a private bedroom and shares the living, dining and other common spaces with a home seeker (sharer.) In exchange, the sharer pays reasonable rent and provides agreed upon services. For example, in exchange for a private bedroom and reasonable rent, the sharer can help with chores or daily living activities which make it challenging for the host to stay independent in their home.
