Prevention

They love each other and their home. Don’t make them leave it.

Did you fall behind on rent? Are you facing eviction?

Don’t get locked out! Family Promise might be able to help.

Our Prevention Program is designed to offer one-time assistance that prevents you from getting evicted and becoming homeless. We will work with you to ensure you are back on track for meeting next month’s rent on time and on your own.

For Prevention Help

We won’t offer full funding. You should be prepared to pay a portion of your rental bill. And maintain communication with your landlord during the process.
