A program that helps match seniors with rooms to spare and students in need of living accommodations could see up to 400 people more in more affordable housing each year if the city comes up with the necessary funds.
In a city where a growing number of seniors are aging in their homes while an affordability crisis continues to challenge people of all ages trying to live in the city, Councillor Josh Matlow plans to ask Thursday for $90,000 to administer the HomeShare program, which was piloted last May.
