Last week Kelly Foley explained how the SHARE Housing Program works and the benefits to both the renter and the rentee. One of the recipients needs to be over 60 years of age. Click here for the website

Why share a home?  Some people like the idea of having another person around the house. Others are looking for an affordable place to live or a way to supplement their income in order to meet household expenses. In some cases, it enables the older adult to remain in their home and community.

Homesharing offers the homeowner:

  • Income to help with expenses
  • A responsible tenant

Homesharing offers the home seeker:

  • A private bedroom with agreed upon, shared common spaces
  • Affordable rent

Homesharing may offer participants help with household tasks or other agreed upon services. It may also offer the home seeker reduced rent in exchange for services.

Who is eligible? Older adults, persons with disabilities, veterans, working professionals, college students, individuals at-risk of homelessness, single-parents, or people simply wishing to share their lives and homes with others. SHARE participants must be at least 18 years of age and one of the individuals in the match must be over 60.

 
 
Last week our District Governor Samantha Maruzzelli, PDG Karen DeMatteo and Mary Tempest made a surprise visit to our club on their way to the President Elect Training Seminar (PETS). Stroudsburgs President Elect Stacy Rodriguez attended along with other President Elects, Assistant Governors and the District Governor Elect and District Governor Nominee from our District.  In total there were about 300 in attendance representing 5 Districts, one which includes the Bahamas.

Last week Alan Schultz from Pedals for Progress talked at the lunch and evening meeting about reviving our efforts with the collection of  bicycles in our area and the benefits they offer to people in impoverished countries. This was a project Dick Ludwig had spearheaded for many years.  We are excited to discuss this project further.

Evening Meeting:
Thank you Kelly Foley for telling us about SHARE - Shared Housing and Resource Exchange serving Monroe, Pike and Wayne Counties.
Shared Housing and Resource Exchange (SHARE) is an affordable housing choice that brings together homeowners who want to share their home with home seekers who are looking for housing in exchange for rent, help around the house, or a combination of both. The home seeker receives their own bedroom and agreed upon use of the common areas. Every arrangement is unique depending on the needs, preferences, and abilities of the participants involved.
 
 
Thank you Leslie Underhill for signing up to assist Valor working with our Veterans and homeless in the area, at Dansbury park on Sunday. Opportunities at Dansbury are available every 2nd Sunday.
