The key is we choose individuals who will not return to homelessness
One of biggest barriers preventing those experiencing homelessness from getting into a home is not having enough money to put down a hefty down payment (first and last month's rent, security and utility deposits).
We provide the means to pay those very deposits - focusing on people who can continue to support themselves and helping to get them back on their feet as quickly and directly as possible.
The people we help must be receiving steady income.
We partner up with local social service agencies to determine whether individuals can continue to pay rent and living expenses after the initial help.
Corresponding case workers at the local service agencies receive the donations. They then work together with the clients to select the right housing options and pay the deposits with the donated funds.
