Housing & Employment Services

After listening to the voices in our community, we know there is a growing need for affordable housing, utility and rent assistance, and employment assistance – especially now in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently working to expand our housing and employment resources, and in the meantime offer support, advocacy, and resource referrals.
