Landlord Recruitment

Seeking landlords to collaborate with our Housing Program


What is the Housing Program?

Helpmate’s housing program provides financial assistance and supportive case management to survivors experiencing homelessness so that they can quickly move into a new, safe, and stable housing unit.

Why should you work with us?

  • Guaranteed rent for the program period (up to 12 months)
  • Other financial incentives as needed, depending on program availability
  • No need to advertise your units-we have many individuals and families in our program waiting to be housed.
  • Assistance with tenant mediation if issues arise

Where is the money coming from?

Helpmate provides rental assistance through administering multiple federal housing grants funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), Continuum of Care (CoC) & HOME Tenant Based Rental Assistance grants.

What is the point of the program?

It is meant to help folks transition into safe housing, as opposed to living with their abuser, staying on the streets, or living in a shelter.  It gives people a financial boost to get back on their feet and out of homelessness.
