A program that matches homeowners with people who wish to share a house, apartment or other residence is offered through the city's Human Services department. Shared Housing was started by the city in 1976 as a referral service for homeowners who wanted to share their home. Director of human services Betty Escobosa said that she does not keep track of how many matches have resulted from the service but that the number of inquiries is steady.

The county's 15 Shared Housing programs want senior citizens who cannot afford their rents to know that they are eligible for affordable housing. Shared Housing pairs those who cannot afford to live alone due to skyrocketing rents with people who are willing to share their homes at low rates. More than 8,500 people have been paired since 1978. The programs are free home-finder referral services that have homes available in 15 cities throughout the county.
