State program expands in Northeastern and Central PA

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s Shared Housing and Resource Exchange Program – called SHARE – has expanded into Lackawanna and Northumberland counties.

SHARE is an affordable housing program that pairs hosts who have extra room in their home with home seekers who are looking for housing, in exchange for rent, help around the house or a combination of both.

Program participants must be at least 18 years of age and one of the individuals in the match must be over 60.

Since the program began in 2017, more than more than 90 matches have been made. It is available in 13 counties statewide, including Carbon, Monroe, Pike, Snyder, Union and Wayne.

For more details, visit the state Department of Aging’s website or call 888-801-SHARE-HOME.
