On Schedule I, line #13, add a line with "roommate contributions to expenses." You will want this amount to reflect your portion of the rent and utilities that they are helping you with. In the "occupation" section at the top of Schedule I, put "unemployed" or "disabled" or whatever the most accurate description of your situation is. At the meeting of creditors, the trustee will be able to clarify any questions he has for you regarding this arrangement, but it is not a terribly unusual situation.
