HomeShare Long Island
The purpose of HomeShare is to link older homeowners who require financial or physical assistance to remain independent in their own homes with younger employed adults or adult students who cannot afford current market rental fees.
HomeShare LI is a program that matches older homeowners who have available bedrooms with other adults who need affordable housing. Some homeowners require assistance with chores, in exchange for low or no rental charge. HomeShare LI offers companionship, safety, and security, and provides homeowners with needed assistance and or income while providing home-seekers with low cost housing.
HomeShare LI is open to Suffolk County homeowners who are 60 or older with an extra bedroom. Home-sharers are 18 years or older, employed and/or a student.
A one time fee of $200 is broken down as follows: Each applicant pays
$100 upon completion of personal interview and an additional $100
when appropriate match is made.
Office hours are Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Evening hours are by appointment.
