Our housing and employment teams combine forces so that families can secure housing and employment, empowering them to achieve independence. We assist clients by instilling in them a sense of resiliency and confidence to successfully navigate housing systems on the path toward achieving self-sufficiency.
Neighborhood House focuses on coaching people toward finding their own solutions and provides one-time rental and move-in assistance, landlord mediation, housing location, job training, placement and retention, and financial counseling. Our clients include those who live in the city of Seattle and are in danger of being evicted or are at risk of losing their utilities.
For more information, please contact Marilynn Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 206-825-2581. Referrals are taken the first week of every month.
Neighborhood House’s Shelter Diversion program helps those who are homeless turn temporary arrangements, such as living with family members, into more permanent solutions. Eligibility determination for the Diversion program is made by King County 2-1-1, which makes referrals to Neighborhood House directly.
Those who are homeless and believe they can avoid continuing to live on the streets or move to a shelter should call the King County Crisis Clinic at 2-1-1 immediately.
Our Rapid Re-Housing program empowers homeless individuals to move into housing and equips them with financial savvy and the skills needed to assume future rent responsibilities. The Homelessness Intervention Project is designed for people who are able to meet regularly with case managers to discuss job prospects and temporary housing options.
For more information, please contact Fartun Mohamed at email@example.com or by phone on Mondays from 9 a.m. until noon at 206-356-1028.
