Questions About the Program

  • How do I qualify for assistance?

    You must first meet with a case manager for a brief screening to determine eligibility. Qualification for assistance is on a case by case basis. Factors may include individual or family income. In some cases, proof of income is required to qualify.

  • Is funding guaranteed?

    Funding is not guaranteed. A landlord is required to approve you for an apartment/house and is willing to work with Together's Crisis Engagement Specialist. You must also meet the guidelines of the funding source.

  • How many times can I get financial assistance through the Crisis Engagement Program?

    Generally, it is a one time assistance. Clients must show they are able to sustain on their own after assistance to obtain the funding. We normally only assist once every 6 to 12 months.
