Funded Nonprofit Partner Agency


Funded program(s)

ECHO Way Home is a rent assistance program that targets people experiencing homelessness. All of the people coming out of these programs have had case managers working with them to prepare them for being ready to look for stable housing. The referred person must be job-ready, as assessed by staff at the agencies referring them for ECHO’s Way Home. The individuals must be willing to work to improve their situation by actively participating in an ongoing housing program that includes case management to work on budgeting, employment and education issues, and addressing other barriers to self-sufficiency, in order to receive multiple-month rent assistance and other wrap-around services from this program.

Housing & Resource Navigator assists homeless households with accessing permanent housing and consults with local service providers to identify appropriate housing opportunities for clients. The Housing & Resource Navigator also conducts outreach and recruitment of local landlords to inform them of the local service providers housing programs including but not limited to Rapid Re-Housing and Permanent Supportive Housing.
