Life, love, and learning start in the home. So we make sure everyone has one.
Supportive Housing Programs
Cuidando follows a “housing first model,” meaning we believe families have a much better chance of overcoming their adverse circumstances if they are given a stable home first. Then families can begin to utilize our other services such as workforce development, trauma informed teaching, and family success planning.
To that end, Cuidando Los Niños is committed to helping our families through the process from start to finish, including:
Rental assistance, which helps families exit homelessness as quickly as possible
Temporary housing to ensure families are off the streets quickly
Home visits to ensure family stability
Nutrition and wellness education
Our housing program combines rental assistance and support services to provide a multifaceted approach to stabilizing our families. Our city-funded rapid rehousing programs cover:
- 12 months of paid rent
- Rental application fees
- Security deposits
- Utility assistance and much more
In addition to helping Cuidando families, our department works with families with older children in our community who come to us from the coordinated entry system and local shelters. We average around 25 families in our housing program at any given time and dozens more who we help with supportive services.
Our children and families deserve our very best.
Housing Program & Services Inquiry
We operate under a continuum of care that allows us to continue with case management even after families have begun paying their own rent.
