Apply for rental assistance from Family Life Center

Family Life Center operates and partners with other organizations to provide emergency shelter. We prioritize shelter based on vulnerability and need. Our shelters serve as a stepping stone to permanent housing.

The housing team provides financial assistance for individuals and families in need. Our Case Managers walk through the process to ensure a smooth transition from homelessness into permanent housing. With Rapid Rehousing, it is our goal to help them obtain permanent housing as quickly as possible, using a Housing First approach. This means we eliminate barriers to housing, such as sobriety requirements. After they are housed, we help them to develop a support network and connection to the community.
