HomeShare helps participants safely find a compatible housemate who will positively impact their lives.

Benefits of HomeShare:

  • Companionship for both HomeProviders and HomeSeekers, ranging from friendliness to long-lasting relationships
  • Potential for help with household chores in exchange for lower rent
  • Extra income for HomeProvider by renting an extra bedroom
  • Create an affordable housing solution for someone living in your community

HomeShare Participants

  • HomeProviders are Larimer County homeowners, living in their own home, who are willing to share their space with a HomeSeeker.
  • HomeSeekers are any Larimer County-based adult willing to explore a mutually beneficial living arrangement with a HomeProvider.

Homeshare is more than a roommate finder – it provides a rewarding housing option to people of all ages. Every HomeShare is unique, and each arrangement is based on the needs, interests, and lifestyles of the individuals involved.

All Applicants Must:

  • Have no pending criminal charges or warrants, no active parole or probation and no convictions involving crimes against persons or property;
  • No history of abuse of any kind;
  • No substance or alcohol use disorder;
  • Have three references who can recommend you for the program. Those seeking housing must provide a resident reference as well, such as a landlord, property manager or housemate;
  • Those seeking housing must either live, work or attend school in Larimer County.

*Even if you meet these eligibility guidelines, we cannot guarantee you housing.  It is up to the participants in our program to ultimately decide who would be the most compatible match for them.

The Process

The Neighbor to Neighbor screening process focuses on safety and security, alongside finding the most compatible match possible!

  • Application – Complete the online application.
  • Schedule Interview – A HomeShare Coordinator will call you to schedule, and this initial contact is currently 3-4 weeks after an application has been completed.
  • Background check  ($25.50 fee).
  • Interview – HomeShare Coordinator and Participant meet to discuss needs, interests, and lifestyle.
  • Match Introductions – Meeting of potential HomeShare matches to discuss lifestyles and expectations.
  • Living Agreement Signing – When HomeProvider and HomeSeeker choose to share a home, the Housing Counselor will help them work out the terms of their living agreement.
  • Support – Additional community resources and referrals can be provided as needed.

HomeShare is not an immediate housing solution. Initial contact is currently 3-4 weeks after an application has been completed. Once connected with a HomeShare Coordinator, it will take time to get through the interview, background check and potential match-finding processes.
