Transitional housing in Vermont.

Several programs are available across Vermont that offer transitional housing and other support. The focus is on assisting families that are facing eviction or that are currently homeless. Some non-profits also prioritize veterans, youth, or single parents. The leading organizations and government support programs to call for help in Vermont are listed below.

The demand for any type of housing assistance is very high. Only a fraction of requests are able to be fulfilled, and many applicants will be placed onto waiting lists. If an agency can’t meet your needs, ask for referrals to a shelter or some other form of housing programs.

In addition to getting a place to stay, the transitional housing programs provide other services as well. This will range from free food to financial literacy and budgeting classes. Also get help in locating an affordable, permanent home or apartment to live in Vermont. Or inquire into government assistance or low income housing, such as section 8 or rapid rehousing programs. The goal is to always first prevent homeless, and then rehouse a Vermont resident as quickly as possible. Ensuring an individual is self-sufficient is key to gaining stability.
