Covia, a nonprofit organization, has partnered with City of Fremont to provide a free Home Match program to connect individuals (age 18 or older) who live or work or attend school in Fremont with someone who has a room to rent in Fremont, Union City, or Newark.
One of our recent matches was Linda and Debi. Linda came to the program looking for someone to provide her with companionship and to drive her to church and the grocery store. Debi was struggling to find affordable housing. They were partnered through Home Match and completed a service agreement together – Linda receives transportation services and Debi has a safe, affordable place to live. They both appreciated Covia’s screening and support. Linda said that “everything is going well and I enjoy having a friend to shop with.”
If you are interested in finding a housemate to pay rent or provide a service exchange, please call Covia’s Home Match Program at 510-574-2173.
