Housing Stability Project is a program designed to help families and individuals who are in a short-term crisis that has been resolved or is close to a resolution but has left the household financially challenged.

It has maintained a consistent 92 percent and above success rate of helping households regain and maintain housing stability.

Veteran households are strongly encouraged to apply.
