HomeShare Vermont (formerly known as Project Home) was founded in 1982 by Polly Rowe, Sally Conrad, and other local volunteers through the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). With help from Nick Danigelis and Fred Fengler, two University of Vermont Sociology professors, they developed the program from scratch, including the matching process that we still use today. In 1986, HomeShare Vermont became a program of the Cathedral Square Corporation (CSC), a local non-profit housing development organization that focuses on the needs of seniors and people with disabilities. Due to the growth of both HomeShare and CSC, HomeShare Vermont became an independent 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in 2005.
