The campaign is a shared effort by homeless services providers in Palm Beach County to bring new landlords on board to make affordable units available to individuals and families. Our ultimate goal is to end homelessness and we know that housing is the solution. Partnering makes good business sense as it is linked with staff resources and financial assistance.
We need the help of landlords who have efficiencies, studios and multiple bedroom units that are affordable to extremely low income families and individuals. Units must rent at or below Fair Market Rent in Palm Beach County.
An individual or family applying for services must provide verification of income and assets, as well as, two forms of identification and verification of bills. Additional information, as applicable, may also be required.
With the exception of specialized programs, services are accessed through three main offices located in Riviera Beach, Delray Beach and Belle Glade. In addition, arrangements can be made with the social worker to meet with an individual if transportation into the office is a barrier. There are no fees for most programs administered. For specialized programs, such as Indigent Burial/Cremation, liens are filed against the estate of the deceased.
