Resources for sharing your home

Home Sharing in Burlington – CEDO released a Whitepaper exploring the benefits of homesharing in the City of Burlington.

A Vermonter’s Guide to Homesharing – This DIY guide, updated for 2022, is for people who want to share their home but want to do it on their own or their home is not in a location served by a homesharing program. 

National Shared Housing Resource Center (NSHRC) is a clearinghouse of information for people looking to find a shared housing program in their community. Their website has a directory of homesharing programs around the U.S.

Homeshare International was founded in London, UK, in 1999 to forge links between homeshare programs around the world and to stimulate the development of new programs. Since then, the homeshare movement has grown in strength and there are now homesharing programs in at least 16 countries.
