Don, Shirley, and Cliff

Don, Shirley, and Cliff

When Cliff was first introduced to Shirley and Don, Shirley was in a rehab center healing from a fall. It was Cliff’s presence that allowed her to re-join Don in their 2nd floor apartment in Moretown.  Home sharing, a community-support strategy, made sense to Shirley and Don as longtime volunteers for Meals on Wheels.  After 20 years of service the Waterbury Area Senior Center now honors them with an annual award in their names, given to those who inspire dedication and dependability.

Cliff is also a community-minded guy, quick to participate in community meals and projects that promote unity. He enjoys singing in the choir and square dancing. In exchange for housing, Cliff paid $300/month in addition to providing some rides and household support for Shirley and Don.

When it was time for the match to end, Cliff was re-matched with another home provider in Moretown where he could exchange his fastidious house-cleaning skills for affordable housing until Cliff was ready to get his own apartment. The majority of home seekers, like Cliff, utilize home sharing as a transition strategy.
