WHY SHARED HOUSING
There are over 1 million available bedrooms in Los Angeles. ALA Shared Housing converts spare rooms into affordable housing which allows the senior homeowner to age in place and for housing seekers to secure affordable rent.
HOW IT WORKS
ALA screens, matches, and monitors two people to share a home based on living preferences and compatibility. Arrangements may be rent or a combination of rent and daily living support such as cleaning, cooking, or transportation.
ALA has had 1,300 successful matches since our inception in 1978, with a match rate of 94%. The average duration is 2.5 years. Given the program’s myriad benefits, the popularity of Shared Housing as a housing option is growing for seniors.
