HIP Housing Home Sharing Program

Printer-friendly version

Home Sharing is a living arrangement among two or more unrelated people. Home owners or renters (Home Providers) who have a residence with one or more bedrooms are matched with persons seeking housing (Home Seekers).

Two Types of Home Sharing
1. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who pays rent.
2. A home provider is matched with a home seeker who exchanges household duties for reduced rent.

Why Home Share?

  • Saves Money
  • Shares utility costs
  • Reduces financial worry
  • Provides mutual assistance
  • Increased security and independence

Who Home Shares?
Home Providers must live in San Mateo County. Home Seekers must live, work or attend school in San Mateo County or have a housing voucher for San Mateo County.  People who home share come from all walks of life… seniors, working persons, students, persons with disabilities, families, veterans, emancipated foster youth and others.

National Park and Recreation Month

Printer-friendly version

DID YOU KNOW? Since 1985, America has celebrated July as the nation’s official Park and Recreation Month. In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives officially mandated July as “Park and Recreation Month.” Here are just a few of the ways that Parks & Recreation enhances our quality of life:

  • According to a 2014 article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, higher levels of green space were associated with lower symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress.
  • The Centers for Disease Control found that increased access to places for physical activity led to a 25.6% increase in people exercising 3 or more times per week.
  • Children that have easy access to a playground are approximately five times more likely to have a healthy weight than children that do not have easy access to playgrounds.
  • Between 2000 and 2012, more than 85 studies have been published that link parks to better physical and mental health.
  • Parks, and particularly the trees in parks, have a direct and important impact on our quality of life. In fact, a 2006 study found that the air pollution removal value by urban trees in the United States is estimated to be 1.56 billion pounds per year – a value of $3.8 billion.

Parks and recreation services are vital for our communities—from protecting open space and natural resources, to helping fight obesity, to providing activities and resources for all walks of life—Park and Recreation Month encourages everyone to reflect on the exponential value parks and recreation bring to communities.   Parks and Recreation not only give us the opportunity to become our best selves, they also super power our communities economically, improve the environment and provide equitable public spaces for all.

This July, America is celebrating the super powers of parks and recreation and all the ways these local, community resources add value to our daily lives. We’re challenging everyone to discover their super powers at our parks and recreation facilities whether it’s running a mile, swimming a designated distance, meeting a fitness goal, building a new network of friends, or finding your green thumb. We hope you'll celebrate the month of July with us through parks & recreation! http://www.brisbaneca.org/about-parks-and-recreation
