Home Sharing Program

If you have been looking for housing in Fremont, you may have discovered how difficult the housing market is throughout the Bay Area.  In an effort to assist homeseekers who currently live or work in Fremont, the City of Fremont and HIP Housing (Human Investment Project) have formed a partnership to offer a home sharing program.
  

What is homesharing?  Home Sharing is a living arrangement in which two or more unrelated people share a house or an apartment. With today's economic challenges, Home Sharing can provide a means to meet the needs of people who have extra rooms and those in need of a place to stay. These homes may be located in Fremont, Newark or Union City.   

This program is run by HIP Housing, a nonprofit organization, which has been connecting home owners or renters (Home Providers) who have a residence with one or more bedrooms, with persons seeking housing (Home Seekers) to pay rent or exchange services for reduced rent.
