Project Share – Livermore & Pleasanton Housing Sharing

Project SHARE was started in 1981 by the Gray Panthers.  They saw shared housing as a possible solution to two problems facing our communities: increasing rents and the institutionalization of older adults.  After creating Project SHARE, the Gray Panthers looked to ECHO Housing to administer and carry out the program.

WHY SHARE?
Shared housing can provide companionship, decrease isolation, reduce the cost of housing, and minimize homelessness.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
All residents of, or persons who want to live in Livermore or Pleasanton are eligible to participate in the program, either as home providers or home seekers.

For more information see the Project Share Website.

Or Contact:  925-449-7340, or email contact@echofairhousing.org
