PROGRAMS - RENTAL ASSISTANCE
   

Interfaith Neighbors’ rental assistance program is designed to help working poor families stave off 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 living as a normal family and 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 approximately 200 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. Click here if you are interested in sponsoring one of our families.

Our agency is also a New Jersey Shares intake agency. For information on qualifying for this utility assistance program, please contact them directly.

The rental assistance program is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a. m. to 4:30 p. m. Applications may be made by telephone or in person during these hours. Qualification and documentation requirements are available upon request. Contact us to learn more about our program.
