Some reasons for needing crisis housing include:
- Current residence becomes unlivable (water damage, fire, mold, extended loss of utilities, etc.)
- Disputes / threats of violence from roommates, landlord, neighbors, etc.
- Sudden change in financial status (job loss, family situations, etc.)
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list – each petition for crisis housing is carefully considered. Please note that Crisis Housing is for urgent crises only; we cannot help with long-term housing difficulties (e.g. unable to find affordable housing).
