As a private, non-profit organization, our fees are an important source of income for our program and we believe people who benefit from our services should help pay for them No one is ever denied services because they cannot afford our fees. Fees can be reduced or waived in cases of hardship. If fees are an obstacle, please let Sunshine Home Share staff know and we will work with you. There is a $50 fee collected at the time of application to cover the costs of the national background check and reference check process If you are a home provider and we find you a successful match, we charge a recommended Match Fee. This is based on a sliding scale, depending on your income.
If you are a home provider and we find you a successful match, we ask for a recommended donation to help us continue our work. This is based on a sliding scale, depending on your income.
All fees are non-refundable. If your match should end unexpectedly within the first three months, your paid match fee will be credited in full toward your next match.
For the first year of a match we require you to participate in quarterly home visits with Sunshine Home Share Staff to help support the success of your living arrangement. We charge a care management fee to support this process.
