Low Income Housing for Seniors
Ventura County and Los Angeles County
Low income senior housing resources
Ventura County Resources
This program matches home providers, primarily seniors, with home seekers who are willing to help with household tasks, transportation, companionship, financial support, or a combination of these in exchange for affordable housing. This program provides housing opportunities for seniors where they do not exist otherwise, although is not limited to seniors. Housing arrangements are beneficial to both parties involved based on the premise that the rental arrangements are constructed based on needs specific to both the provider and seeker.

There are no income, insurance, or health requirements to be able to access our services and we typically offer to follow up within 2-3 business days of completing an intake with our staff over the phone. Seniors often use our service to set up in-home care, coordinate low-cost placement options, transfer into a nursing home, set up utility assistance, apply for Medi-Cal, connect to a caregiver, and much more… Our service specializes in situations where our clients have moderate to high care needs and limited resources or low income.
Intake criteria require that a senior be over the age of 65 and have a problem that they want to talk about. That’s it. We will also consider working with older adults who are not yet 65 years old if they have either, 1. Medicare recognized long-term disability or, 2. terminal illness.
