Assistance we provide
Motel to Home
Motel to Home- (rental assistance) The motel to home initiative was established to help families that have lived in extended stay motels for at least 6 months get into an apartment. Because of the high weekly rate extended stay motels charge for residency, families often times cannot save enough money for a security deposit and the first and last months rent. For those just needing rental assistance CRP can pay the security deposit and first month’s rent for a family to help them get into an apartment .
Individuals enrolled in the Permanent Housing program have their immediate housing needs met, which includes a room in a shared living space along with bedroom and living room furniture. Over the course of the program, individuals share living spaces with a roommate of the same sex. We provide housing through a CRP sublease; rent is divided equally and households received a monthly credit for electricity.
Kids Home Intiative
Kids Home Initiative is a resource for homeless and housing-instable families. CRP provides a well-rounded, individualized solution to house each family. Solutions include up to $4,000 for remedying housing barriers as well as food assistance. Children experiencing housing instability often struggle in classes and other aspects of life.
