Maine HomeShare: Putting Extra Rooms to Work for Personal & Social Good

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Featured Speaker - Noelle Marcus, CEO of Nesterly
A free educational program offered in partnership with Lifelong Maine, AARP Maine, Age Friendly Saco, and the UMaine Center on Aging. All interested adults are welcome!

Attend this information session to learn about a new opportunity for home sharing in Maine. Maine Housing recently awarded a $200K to Nesterly, a social justice corporation, to offer supportive services and guidance to link homeowners with rooms to rent with interested renters. Nesterly goes beyond the typical landlord-tenant relationship to create mutually beneficial shared living experiences, including handling all the legal and vetting aspects of home sharing.

The Nesterly platform (see https://www.nesterly.com/) is now available for residents throughout Maine. If you are interested in learning more about home sharing, please join us for this educational presentation about how Nesterly works to help people who have rooms or a small apartment to rent and supports people in need of rental homes. We will also hear from people who have tried home sharing. There will be a generous amount of time for questions and answers.
