Housing & Homelessness
Homelessness is a real problem in our area. There are many factors that contribute to this, including reduction of a household’s income, high housing costs, disputes with property owners and domestic violence. Staff counsel households on housing options, educate renters on their rights and responsibilities and coordinate with other providers in the community to help individuals and families obtain or maintain housing.
We can help you with budget counseling. We can sit down and help go through your finances to help you identify areas where we can help you save.
We can help with:
• Tenant education & counseling
• Tenant/Landlord Advocacy
• Intervention/Prevention of Evictions
We can help with permanent housing and with a referral for home ownership.
We also have our VT Matched Savings Program through our Financial Education Program where you can learn to save while receiving matching funds.
