Housemates Wanted

Don’t want to live alone? Create your own “Golden Girls” life! We can help you find others looking to share a residence to save money or for companionship.

You do not both need to be seniors—in fact, renting a room to a university student or providing it in return for some chores might be the perfect solution for you both. Think creatively!

Fill out this form and submit it online, mail it to 745 Vermont, Lawrence, KS 66044, or bring it to the Senior Resource Center temporary location at 2920 Haskell Ave.
Call 785-842-0543 for more information.
