HOUSING PLACEMENT

UCHC housing placement counselors work with individuals and families living in shelters, on the streets and in substandard or overcrowded housing, to identify decent and affordable housing opportunities and help these individuals and families relocate.

The counselors interview the individual or family to determine needs, locate potential affordable housing units, inspect the housing to ensure it meets basic housing quality standards, negotiate rental agreements and move-in costs, and assist in identifying and obtaining resources to enable them to move in.

Walk-intake begins at 7:00 a.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. Advice and representation are available to persons who are homeless or are in immediate jeopardy of homelessness (facing evictions, utility shut-offs, or living in substandard housing). Intake is limited to the first 15 people.

If you are need of immediate shelter contact the CAM at (313) 305-0311.
