A unique roommate matching service.
We match individuals who have a disability waiver with a compatible caregiver-roommate who can provide a designated level of caregiving. The end goal: a living situation that helps both parties thrive.
Here’s how it works
STEP 1: COMPLETE THE RUMI PROFILE. Interested in finding a roommate? Complete the Rumi profile. You’ll get to tell us about who you are, what you like to do, what you need help with or can offer, and other fun stuff. Individuals might benefit from assistance filling out the profile. Don’t hesitate to ask a case manager, guardian, friend, or family member—or feel free to contact Bridges MN and we’d be happy to help.
STEP 2: VERIFICATION Your comfort and safety is our top priority. On all profiles, we complete verifications to confirm identity and run preliminary background checks.
STEP 3: LET THE SEARCH BEGIN! If approved, after 48 business hours, a limited, security-friendly version of your profile will appear on the site. You’ll be free to view other approved profiles. If you spot a person who seems like a great match, you can “wave” at the other profile. A wave says you’re interested in starting a conversation. If the other party waves back, you’ll automatically get to view the person’s full profile and start a conversation. Ideal match? Great! If not, you can keep looking.
STEP 4: RUMINATE! Once you find an ideal match, we’re available to help you locate housing (if necessary). We’ll also finalize agreements between roommates, Bridges MN, and case management. This includes designated caregiving services and financial arrangements.
REMEMBER: WE’RE HERE TO DO THE HEAVY LIFTING
Throughout the process, resources are available to help you develop a great profile, stay safe, and find the best roommate possible. Rumi provides background screening, quality housing condition verification, ongoing training, and quality assurances to help ensure the best possible living situation for everyone.
