$1,000 Incentive to Home Providers

We are offering a $1,000 incentive to SLO County home providers who sign up to rent space in their homes to another SLO County resident. Please review the program's qualifications for more information.

HomeShareSLO's Programs Work in Three Ways

(1) Rental agreement only (averaging $725/month) 

(2) Rental plus task exchange (8 hours per week + $400-500/month rent paid)*

(3) Full task exchange (15 hours per week + $150/month for utilities)*

*Please note that these task exchange options are not covered in the $1,000 incentive. Only full rental agreements qualify. Task exchanges may include: light housekeeping, rides to appointments and errands, pet care, yard work, meal preparation, and computer help.

"The help HomeShareSLO offered in connecting us, drawing up an agreement and facilitating the signing was incredibly helpful and gives me security knowing I'm in a good situation. Knowing my home provider was background-checked gives me comfort as well." --Jenae W., Atascadero

"I had the most pleasant experience with Home Share SLO. Not only did they provide a great roommate, they facilitated a contract change without skipping a beat. I would highly recommend the organization." --Pauline, Nipomo

"Being a single senior female on a limited income, my stress level was over the top trying to find housing. Thank you for the wonderful attention to detail and matching me in the absolute best situation." -Dennice C., Los Osos

"I live in a larger home and I had some extra space. I'd been alone in the home for about 5 years and I thought well, maybe I should give it a try... I think they do a good job of checking people's credentials. That was a good safety factor for me. I think HSSLO does a real good job of matching people up. We get along really well. We make each other laugh. I would recommend it for others." -Beth W., Grover Beach
