HIP (Human Investment Project) Housing - Available Rooms

HIP Housing is a non-profit organization that provides a place to call home to persons in San Mateo County.

Do you know anyone looking for a housemate or renter, or trying to rent out a room in their home? HIP Housing’s Home Sharing program can help make that a safe, comfortable process. HIP Housing has given free, long-term support to those who need it most in San Mateo County for 42 years. This is especially important now, as our county has become one of the most expensive areas to live in within the United States. The need for extra income is a common one, and renting out a room in your home is a great way to reduce costs and stimulate your community. Call 650-348-6660 for information or visit www.hiphousing.org or www.facebook.com/hiphousing.

There is no cost to participate in the program. Contact HIP Housing at 650-348-6660 to schedule an appointment to discuss the home sharing opportunities below or other available housing home sharing, home equity conversion, counseling, self-sufficiency for families property development.
