Home Match

Open your doors to a new opportunity.

Living well—with others

Home Match helps people with extra rooms in their homes connect with home seekers who need an affordable place to live, creating a win-win situation.
Finding home within a home.

A little help around the house and companionship can make a huge difference. Home Match interviews prospective home providers (homeowners or renters) and home seekers to check backgrounds and ensure compatibility, then connects people based on lifestyle and living preferences. In some cases, a reduced rent can be arranged in exchange for services, such as driving to the grocery store or lending a hand around the home. Thus, home providers are empowered to age in place, while homemates benefit from an affordable rent; both gain opportunities for new social connections and community. Home Match currently has programs in the cities of San Francisco and Fremont, plus Contra Costa and Marin Counties.

Home Match screens all applicants with interviews and background checks, and provides assistance with rental agreements for both parties. We can also provide mediation and referral services, if needed.
