Our Housing Services

Emergency Rent, Mortgage and Utility Assistance

Motel 2 Home

Motel 2 Home is a comprehensive rehousing program designed to help individuals and families move from extended-stay motels to stable housing.

Extended Stay Motels have become the homeless shelters of the suburbs for many families.  Even though most of them are working full-time, they often have no other alternative after experiencing an eviction because most property owners will not rent to a tenant with an eviction record. They move in thinking it will be a temporary solution but become trapped as high daily and weekly fees and local motel taxes leave them little money to save for paying off debt or paying deposits on a new apartment.

Find out if you qualify for financial assistance through the Motel 2 Home Program.
