Second Story for Homeless Youth helps homeless high school students and young adults with housing, rent assistance, and case management. We use a combination of host homes, rental assistance, rapid re-housing, and a house in Vienna to help homeless youth in the community.
Are you or your family at risk of being homeless because of rent or something else? You might qualify to get help from Project HOPE (Housing Opportunities and Prevention Efforts) offered through Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness. Assistance available through Project HOPE includes assistance in paying your security deposit, first month’s rent, rental arrearages (overdue rent), foreclosure assistance, and utilities.
