Pierce County transitional housing programs.

Struggling residents across Pierce County can turn to low income and transitional housing programs. The centers focus on assisting the homeless, but others can get help as well. Resources are available for families facing imminent eviction, veterans, single parents, and others from the community.

Non-profit organizations administer several services for clients. They range from emergency shelter, temporary housing, and then help in locating and paying the rent for a permanent home in Pierce County. Those people who use these resources will also often be provided free meals, food, and access to self-sufficiency programs such as job training. For example, clients can get information on what employers may be hiring in the Tacoma Washington area.

If you are homeless, facing eviction, or behind on your rent, call an agency as soon as possible. Some centers may be able to help those applicants that qualify, and other non-profits may refer a family to other resources. This can include government subsidized housing or maybe other local agencies.
