Roommate i-Match Expo - August 7, 2019

8/07/2019 9:30 am to 8/07/2019 3:30 pm

Event Description

Trying to decide if having a roommate is right for you?

Need help finding a roommate, but don’t how or what to do?

Looking for an opportunity to meet potential roommates in a safe, comfortable setting?

Need tips on interviewing roommates, understanding/creating roommate agreements, and information about housing options?

Integrated, independent housing can be difficult to find for people in the Settlement Agreement Population and people with disabilities in general. Challenges include finding affordable housing, obtaining the right supports, and finding a roommate. The Northern Virginia Housing and Supportive Services Regional Implementation Team designed the Roommate i-Match Survey and the Roommate i-Match Expo to help address these challenges.

Join us for this event if you are:

  • An individual in the Settlement Agreement Population or a person with a disability looking for a roommate.
  • A person with a room to rent.
  • A family member supporting a person with a disability who is seeking a roommate or who has a room to rent.
  • A Support Coordinator/service provider assisting individuals who are looking for a roommate.

The Expo will be split into AM and PM sessions, with lunch provided by Blossom Daily Cafe in between sessions. Participants can choose to attend one or both sessions. During the Expo, participants will:

  • Receive information to help answer the questions above.
  • Have an opportunity to fill out the Roommate i-Match Survey (assistance is available if needed).
  • Network with individuals interested in living with a roommate through a structured "meet and greet" activity.

If you need a reasonable accommodation, please email your request to familysupportservices@servicesource.org or call 571-328-5788 by August 2, 2019.
