Housing & Shelter

Options that Address Individual Situations and Needs


Our housing options don’t just put a roof over your head. Our staff will also help you build skills, make plans for the future, and connect to counseling, education, job training, employment, and other resources. Housing options include:

We can also help you find your own apartment in the community, access vouchers and subsidies, and connect to other services and resources
