What is a "Home-mate"?

A:

Home-mate is a term that those who participate in The Transition use to describe someone with whom they live. We use this term because people live in a variety of ways and using a term like "housemate" or "roommate" is not very all encompassing to the many ways our Contributors live. This term is also used because it is through our work at The Transition that we feel wherever you live it is not just a building or structure you live in, but a place that acts as your sanctuary and where you feel most comfortable. We feel "home" creates that sense of warmth and belonging when we use it in this way.
