Looking For Housing to Share?

Most often, our home providers are looking to provide a private bedroom plus shared use of the common spaces in the home, like kitchen and living room. But sometimes home providers have an entire floor to offer, or a little apartment, or a duplex. Here is a partial listing of folks offering housing to share in Home Share Now's service area.

Please browse the listings and see if anything catches your eye. Keep in mind we get new enrollments every week and that this is not a complete list.
