IGEN Frequently Asked Questions

IGEN is a home sharing program that connects like-minded people. The program uses a people-first approach, placing suitable guests into the spare rooms of wonderful hosts. All hosts and guests are pre-screened by Happipad and matched based on personality and needs.
IGEN was created as a solution to address the issue of affordable housing. Happipad realizes that shared living arrangements will only work if you are matched with like- minded people and are provided with the required resources to make the process simple, trustful, and enjoyable. Shared living arrangements have the potential for many benefits beyond affordable housing, such as community building, social companionship, and increased health and happiness.
