Helping families find affordable, stable housing.

HousingLink is a search tool to connect families with affordable housing of all types. It also offers information on where to find legal help with housing problems.
Day One Hotline
Victims of domestic or sexual violence or human trafficking can call or text 866.223.1111 or use the chat feature on their website to connect with housing and support.
Homeless School Liaisons
Under a federal law called the McKinney-Vento Act every school district must have a liaison for children and youth experiencing homelessness. If you become homeless, your child has the right to remain in the school that they were attending, and the district must continue to provide transportation. If you have questions, you can contact the liaison for your child’s school or district.
