The goal of the program is to assist young adults who are at-risk of or who are already experiencing homelessness to reintegrate in the community by helping them obtain or maintain safe, affordable housing and by linking them to mainstream, community-based services they need.
- Working with a Life Coach/Navigator to develop a housing plan.
- Locating housing, paying application/credit check fees, first month’s rent and/or security deposits, providing moving assistance and facilitating landlord/tenant mediation.
- Linking youth with other community services, such as employment assistance, education, training, physical, mental, and/or chemical health services, child care, transportation assistance or legal services.
- Subsidizing rent – either one-time, or for short or medium terms. The rental unit lease agreement is in the assisted youth’s name.
- Participation in the Single Adult Coordinated Entry System (CES). Families will be referred to 211 or Family Solutions Center.
- Must have homeless verification and referral.
- Must have income.
- Must demonstrate the ability to sustain and maintain housing without further assistance once the subsidy ends.
