AUGUST 2017 ISSUE

GET SET | HOUSING SEARCH TOOLS

Here are a few resources that you can use to search for housing. Visit the YMCA Center for young adults for a calendar of classes and information sessions on Housing!

It’s also important to prepare for your housing search. Depending on your housing barriers, it may or may not take a long time to find the right housing. Here a few things that may assist you in your search:

  • Understand the barriers that may disqualify you from different housing facilities and find solutions to resolving barriers (ex. Repairing poor credit, making payment plans for eviction debts, resolving charges on criminal backgrounds, etc.)
  • Prepare to take time off of work or school if needed to tour housing facilities
  • Create a budget and housing timeline with your resource specialist to assure success in your housing search
