because housing is the only remedy to end homelessness


The Housing Locator Team is the committed to ensure clients experience a smooth transition from homelessness into permanent housing.


Because housing is the only remedy to end homelessness, working with housing service providers, community landlords, rental property owners and property managers is essential.


It is a business with a purpose – by partnering with us, your rental unit stays occupied while housing some of our most vulnerable population.

Clients Permanently Housed
