Ecumenical Ministries presents: Metro HomeShare

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon’s Metro HomeShare helps home providers stabilize and retain their housing, while offering access to affordable rent or services to home seekers. They work with home providers to identify their needs, such as financial burdens, loneliness, or inability to live alone and complete everyday tasks. Additionally, they work with home seekers who may be unable to qualify for traditional affordable housing options, by facilitating the matching process until a homeshare agreement has been made. This program also addresses deeper human needs for connection, community, independence and empowerment. Learn more today.
