HomeShare is a housing program that matches people looking for housing with people that have extra space and are looking for a roommate. The process includes an application, an interview, inspection of a home provider’s property, background checks and follow-up. Homesharing is an alternative way of meeting housing needs that benefits renters and homeowners alike. Some reasons people share include: companionship, help with chores and light housekeeping, or financial assistance with taxes, utilities and maintenance. For more information, check out our HomeShare Information Booklet, call (805) 477-7300, or email Home.Share@ventura.org.
