How It Works

Overview

HousingMatch.org is a private online community by agency referral only. The database is accessed by case managers from agencies all over the state who help to connect people in the network. Agencies will run background checks and assess prospective members’ eligibility for the network. They help with rental agreements and crafting house rules, and they provide ongoing supports to ensure that the arrangement is a good match.

How It Works
