  • 1 person is interested

Consider volunteering your time by matching people who have a home to share with others who hope to find affordable housing through HomeShare Vermont, a nonprofit screening and matching organization. With the help and support of HomeShare VT staff, the volunteer conducts in-depth interviews with people looking for housing and with others who want to share their homes (sometimes seniors or persons with a disability). Volunteers also make reference phone calls, facilitate introduction meetings, assist with home sharing agreements, and provide ongoing support to home sharers. HomeShare VT is looking for volunteers with good listening skill and interviewing skills who are willing to make a one-year commitment. Basic computer and paperwork abilities, willingness to do some driving and proof of insurance required. Ongoing support, supervision, and training provided.
