A Venice couple is housing homeless people, one small building at a time

SHARE, or Self-Help and Recovery Exchange, is a nonprofit organization that “places extremely low-income people into market-rate housing by matching renters two to a bedroom.” The model depends on renters being able to pay and requires renters to attend weekly self-help sessions. The homes are rented out by local investors who are interested in helping homeless people while still turning a small profit via their investment. Currently, SHARE houses 400 tenants throughout Los Angeles.
