Rental Assistance and Case Management

We help single working parents achieve self-sufficiency with a three-pronged approach for UP TO THREE YEARS: monthly rental assistance to help prevent homelessness; mandatory monthly budget meetings to discuss successes, challenges, and goals; and weekend workshops to present ideas for cutting expenses and increasing income. We also support participants in other ways: with food/gas gift cards, and with support for their children's summer camps and activities.
