How Alison spends her free time:

What made her interested in Intergenerational Home Sharing:
In an undergraduate public health course, I wrote a brief paper about an intergenerational home share program in California when we were discussing affording housing initiatives. I thought it was a really creative idea and loved the companionship pieces so I kept that in mind as I applied to grad schools in big cities. As an only child, I spent most of my childhood around older adults and in high school was comfortable volunteering in the community at places that primarily served seniors. Moving from midwest suburbia to NYC, I was intimidated to live alone and was also appreciative of the cheaper rent so it seemed like a wonderful fit.
