Interfaith Neighbors’ rental assistance program is designed to help low income families avoid homelessness or recover from the unfortunate circumstances that caused them to become homeless.
Many families are headed by single parents who are unskilled workers. Their wages are at or below the poverty line and simply not sufficient to pay the high rents in Monmouth County. Other families are in crisis for different reasons. A child suffering from leukemia, a working parent who has become seriously injured or ill – these are some of the stories we hear. Our rent subsidy can be the difference between financial stability or eviction, homelessness and fear.
The rental assistance program is available to residents of Monmouth County who are working full time and have dependent children living in their household. After a qualifying interview, those accepted into the program are provided with support ranging from a one-time rental or mortgage payment to a short-term rent subsidy paid directly to a landlord.
This program helps over 300 families each year. It also operates an “Adopt-A-Family” program each holiday season, collecting and distributing donations of food, toys and gifts to many of these families. Contact us if you are interested in sponsoring one of our families.
Those seeking assistance can contact the office by phone Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to make an appointment. Qualification and documentation requirements are available upon request. Contact us to learn more about our program.
