Shared Housing of New Orleans keeps elderly and/or disabled homeowners from going to nursing homes that do not want to or need to be there. They are matched with individuals who need a place to live. There is an even exchange of room and board by the homeowner for light housework and companionship by the homeseeker. The organization's mission is to prevent the unnecessary institutionalization of elderly and disabled homeowners. Also they attempt to reduce homelessness by providing a transitional housing option for individuals seeking a place to stay. Independence and dignity are preserved in a mutually beneficial homesharing arrangement.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing successful homesharing matches help people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very kind and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help a lot of elderly individuals in the New Orleans area, as well as people in need of transitional housing.
