Home Sharing is a living arrangement among two or more unrelated people. Home owners or renters (Home Providers) who have a residence with one or more bedrooms are matched with persons seeking housing (Home Seekers)
The Self Sufficiency Program (SSP) provides housing assistance and support services to low-income parents who are in school to increase their earning power and become financially self-sufficient within 1-2 years. Participants receive subsidized rent while they complete an education or job training program and find employment in their field.
HIP Housing sees Property Development as a great opportunity to preserve and expand the affordable rental housing stock available in San Mateo County.
