Affordable Living for the Aging

Provides affordable housing, supportive services, and alternative housing options for low-income and fomerly homeless older adults. Housing Providers can join the program to share their homes with compatible, pre-screened Housing Seekers who can pay a monthly rent for available rooms, offer assistance with household chores, or both. Housing Seekers are adults of all ages who may not wish to live alone or cannot afford to do so. They must be mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially self-sufficient. The organization will screen both providers and seekers, match compatibility, and execute living agreement.
