Metro HomeShare is not currently creating new matches and will pause operations beginning July 2021. If you have any questions, please email emo@emoregon.org.

Metro HomeShare will conduct home visits, run background checks, create a comprehensive matching profile and collect references, ensuring each participant is a good fit for the program. Our thorough vetting process allows both the Home Provider and the Home Seeker to feel confident when entering the homeshare agreement.

Home Provider Criteria:
> An individual with extra space in their home, who is able to legally rent the extra space, and is willing to live with a housemate and share common areas of their home.
> An individual willing to rent out a room at a below-market rate.
> An individual seeking assistance in the form of rent or services or a combination of both.
> Pass a criminal background check.
