A new program hopes to prevent homelessness. Rappahannock Legal Services will launch the HomeShare program which matches people needing homes with those who have room to spare.
A few months ago, I met with RLS director Bill Botts, who told me the program could benefit a person who has an extra room or a basement apartment and who needs help around the house, with childcare or with taking care of an elderly relative.
Informational sessions are now starting:
