7th World Homeshare Congress
While nonprofit homesharing programs are new to many of the people that we reach out to, we always stress that they're not actually new at all. In fact, since the first one was started in Vermont over 40 years ago, the concept has gone global! Case in point, Homeshare International just announced their 7th World Homeshare Conference.

Tara first brought her passions for social justice, public education, and information management to HSAR as a volunteer, before we were lucky enough to hire her aboard. A member of the Unitarian Universalist Society of Sacramento, she holds a B.A. in Anthropology, and is completing her Master's in Sociology.
Lauren has been a lifelong advocate and volunteer for underrepresented and misunderstood youth minority groups. She is sincerely passionate about instigating positive change in our collective community (and not least in its housing needs!). A recent graduate of Humboldt State University, she holds a B.A. in International Studies.

Call to Matchmakers!
A key limit to how many people we can help, and where, is the strength and the breadth of our team of Matchmakers.
Some who are already matchmaking in their regular job duties (e.g; senior or on-campus social workers), but also many who are amazing volunteers like these and just can't help themselves from making and keeping matches for YEARS on end.
