Houston and Harris County low income housing.

Single parents, low income families, the homeless, seniors, and others in Houston Texas who are faced with eviction or who need housing have a number of programs and services available to them. Transitional housing, shelter, and case management support services are available to Harris County individuals. Some of the primary beneficiaries are single parents and mothers, senior citizens, people who are currently homeless, victims of domestic violence, and those recently evicted.

Unfortunately the demand for safe, affordable low income apartments and housing is very high in Harris County. Not everyone will be able to receive assistance, however in general the agencies and non-profits are committed to doing what they can to help. If an organization can’t meet your housing needs, they can sometimes refer applicants to other programs, such as section 8, emergency rental resources, or shelters that can provide lodging in a crisis.

Not only can these agencies and programs potentially provide affordable housing and shelter, but self-sufficiency is offered too. Participants will often follow a plan with financial, educational, employment, and career goals to both establish stability and maintain self sufficiency after leaving the program. Individuals also learn and touch up on housekeeping, parenting, child care, budgeting and household finance skills.
