Jamie Taylor, Ph.D., is founder of the Shared Housing Institute (SHI). The Shared Housing Institute partners with a network of shared housing experts to increase housing options, and client dignity. It provides guidance and technical support for local communities to systematically expand shared housing efforts.
Transitioning out of homelessness can be a lonely process. To address this, some homeless service providers are giving clients the option to share housing with someone they know, with each receiving their own bedroom.
