Emily Klein
Fishline HomeShare Coordinator

Emily is the HomeShare coordinator at Fishline, a food bank and comprehensive service center in Poulsbo, WA. She is a passionate advocate for the potential of shared housing to help address our region’s affordable housing crisis and to help elders age in the community. She has lived in Washington for much of her life and attended Seattle University, where she received a BA in cultural anthropology. 

Emily will share information about Fishline’s HomeShare program, which facilitates connections between those with space to rent in their homes and those in need of affordable housing. Home sharing programs exist worldwide, and are a community-centered, cost-effective way to promote housing affordability and help elders to age in place. Fishline’s program provides resources for those interested in home sharing, including extensive background and reference checks, personalized interviews, and referrals to potential home-mates.
