Collaborative Housing A Winning Solution

SHARE! Collaborative Housing is a public-private partnership providing affordable, permanent supportive housing to disabled people in single-family houses throughout Los Angeles County.

People with similar issues, such as vets, mental health consumers, people with diabetes, trauma issues, etc. live like college roommates, each paying approximately $500 to $900 or less monthly in a fully-furnished house. The Collaborative Housing Homeowner furnishes the house, pays all utilities, does not collect a Security Deposit and does not require resident to pay for a credit or background check. Residents pay rent from their disability checks or other income directly to the Homeowner.

SHARE! has been referring to Collaborative Housing in Los Angeles since November 2005 and currently offers more than 50 houses in the Los Angeles Area. This project is supported by the L.A. County Department of Health Services, Sup. Janice Hahn, Councilmember Mike Bonin, Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, United Way and L.A. County Department of Mental Health.

For more information, call 1-877-SHARE-49 (toll-free) or (310) 846-5271 today. Housing referrals are made from 1 to 6 pm weekdays by phone, or walk in to SHARE! Culver City or SHARE! Downtown for a referral in person.
