Parker County rental and housing assistance.

Several agencies provide one time rent help to struggling Parker County Texas families. The agencies, which include churches and charities such as the Salvation Army, do their part to stop homelessness in the community. Tenants with an eviction notice or the homeless can apply for grants for paying their rent or other housing costs, including security deposits.

The housing services in the region include legal aid, shelter, transitional housing, and of course financial help for paying rent. A few of the agencies that help are based in Weatherford, but there are also churches as well as regional non-profits that offer assistance.

Not only may funds be available for paying a landlord back rent, but there is also general counseling given. This can benefit a family that is facing eviction as if they are behind on their utility bills, then maybe a payment plan can assist. It can even help homeowners facing foreclosure. So various emergency housing programs, in addition to rent help, are available in Parker County.
