Second Chance Renting
Our Second Chance Renting Program is designed to help Homeless Working Families get a Second Chance at Renting. We help people with previous evictions, judgments, bankruptcies, bad credit, convictions and first-time renters find an apartment. THE MAIN REQUIREMENT IS INCOME. YOU MUST BE ON YOUR JOB FOR AT LEAST 4 MONTHS. YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO SIGN UP EVEN IF YOU HAVEN’T BEEN ON YOUR JOB FOR AT LEAST 4 MONTHS. ONCE YOU HIT THE 4 MONTH MARK, WE WILL REACH OUT AND BEGIN THE PLACEMENT PROCESS.
The process for getting into the program is as follows:
· Fill out the program application. You can fill out a rental app, upload current check stubs and a current ID, sign the program contract and pay a ($338 or 5-12% of your monthly income) program fee within the application. The program fee includes a credit repair program that is mandatory to get into our program.

The Spend DownProgram benefits both owners and tenants. Tenants have the opportunity to submit a larger payment with their initial rent and security deposit. This larger amount will offset future rent payments.
