Our Accessible Housing Navigator centralizes communication between landlords and housing service agencies to increase access to safe and affordable housing for Denton County households in crisis.
This program began as a pilot and exemplified the public-private partnership we strive to foster. Funding from Cities of Denton and Lewisville and a private donor enabled our Housing Navigation program to take off and receive US Department of Housing and Urban Development Funding (HUD) to expand services even further. During 2020 our Housing Navigator was able to assist over 30 households into safe and stable housing. These households contain individuals, families, Veterans, and single mothers fleeing domestic violence.
LANDLORDS ARE THE KEY TO SUCCESS.
Our Housing Navigator serves as the bridge between case managers needing affordable units for their clients and landlords with vacant units to fill. If a problem arises with a tenant in the program, the landlord can make one call to the navigator. And they have the assurance their tenants are receiving social service support for help with stable employment, childcare, education, etc.
Our Housing Navigator has connections to over 100 landlords and property managers in Denton County, but more are always needed. If you own rental property in Denton County, contact us to learn how you can participate.
