Shared Housing Center was created in 1984 to provide and facilitate affordable housing options. Our mission has been to offer housing options and supportive services that foster independence, empowerment, and self-worth and to serve a multicultural, intergenerational population.
Since our inception, we have offered housing and services to critically at-risk populations — older adults, single parents with young children, non-traditional families and individuals with special needs — seeking to elevate themselves from homeless and near homeless situations to lifestyles of relative self-sufficiency.
Our agency offers two basic services to meet the needs of the homeless/near homeless for supportive living environments that foster interpersonal growth and mutual self-help: Homeshare and Transitional, Intergenerational Group Residence.
We break the cycle of homelessness and housing instability for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in our community, through housing solutions and supportive services that encourage independence, empowerment, and a stronger sense of self-worth.
