- Community Resources Programming
Community Resources Program
Our Community Resources Program, offered through our Affordable Housing Information and Referral Center, assists low-income persons and families in locating and qualifying for public, private sector, and subsidized housing.
Assistance is provided in the following areas:
- Applying for affordable housing and Housing Choice Voucher Programs.
- Locating affordable, quality apartments for rent.
- Receiving assistance for eviction prevention and utility costs.
- Securing emergency and temporary shelter.
- Obtaining information regarding tenant rights and responsibilities.
The Center is developing a database of available subsidized housing developments and programs and is compiling a monthly listing of available apartments for rent. The Center provides both individual and group housing counseling and education sessions to low-income individuals and families. The services of the Housing Center are available to community residents and are coordinated with our Homeless Continuum of Care, local Department of Social Services and Health Department, faith-based organizations, housing providers, and landlords.
