Shared Housing -- An Effective, Rapid, and Solution-Based Housing Option

This blogpost features shared housing -- where two or more unrelated persons live in common space and divide housing costs -- as a potential option to address homelessness in high-cost housing markets. It illustrates four successful shared housing programs in Fredericksburg, Virginia; West Palm Beach, Florida; and Los Angeles and Orange County, California. Common elements of these models include a client-centered approach, ability to fund landlord engagement resources flexibly, conflict resolution training, and adaptable roommate matching.
