Need an affordable place to live within the five boroughs?  Looking to reduce your household expenses? New York Foundation for Senior Citizens’ (NYFSC) Home Sharing Program may be just the right thing.    

It is a free service that matches hosts with an extra bedroom or private space in their houses or apartments with compatible guests looking for affordable housing throughout New York City’s five boroughs.  

“Our free and innovative service is a wonderful resource,” said Linda Hoffman, president of New York Foundation for Senior Citizens. “Our professional social work staff provide confidential screening, matching of guests with compatible hosts and follow-up services.”  

The Home Sharing Program has been successfully matching individuals in such living arrangements for 40 years. Adults age 18 or older are eligible, but at least one of the participants must be age 60 or older.
