Testimonials

"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
