The Adams County Office for Aging Inc. (ACOFA) is pleased to announce again the start of a housing program, aimed at adults age 60 and over. The Shared Housing Match-up Pilot Program, called SHARE, is designed to address an increasing need for affordable housing options for 60-plus adults who wish to age in place in their homes.

Shared housing is a housing option in which unrelated individuals share a home to their mutual benefit. Unlike other housing models, such as a group home or congregate living, shared housing is characterized by control, choice, and a mutually agreed upon exchange of services, if appropriate.

Valery Adams is the SHARE housing counselor for the Adams County Office for Aging Inc.
