In this July 17, 2014 photo, Carolyn Allen, left, a 69-year-old widow who has suffered two strokes, is shown with roommate Marcia Rosenfeld, who owns the apartment in Brooklyn, New York, where Allen lives.  The two women are roommates thanks to a home-sharing program run by the New York Foundation for Senior Citizens, a nonprofit agency.  Rosenfeld's two-bedroom apartment is too big for her, and even with a senior citizen's rent break it was too expensive, so she is happy to have Allen help share living expenses. The pair say the home-sharing program works well for them. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
