Living well—with others
For seniors who live alone, a little help around the house and companionship can make a huge difference. Home Match interviews prospective homeowners and home seekers to check backgrounds and ensure compatibility, then connects people by researching personal preferences, house types, and interests. In some cases, accommodation can be provided in exchange for services, such as driving to the grocery store or lending a hand around the house. With this kind of arrangement, senior homeowners can often continue to be successful in their own home, while lodgers have access to affordable housing so they can remain in the area and continue their good work. 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.
