PTAA is working with the Partners Ending Homelessness (PEH) to end homelessness for veterans in Guilford County before the end of 2015 and we need your help. One of the biggest obstacles they face is finding enough housing for the veterans and so we need your help in finding those available housing units, but please remember that this would not be a handout. Here’s what we wrote when we announced this initiative:
- PEH is not looking for handouts. They are looking for property owners/managers who will work with them by being flexible with regards to credit histories and some aspects of criminal background checks.
- The program will pay up to fair market rent. The organization is sponsoring the client resident so there is not a risk of default by the individual resident.
- Caseworkers actively manage each resident. That means your onsite manager will NOT have to actively manage the resident’s situation and WILL have a resource in case any situation does arise.
If you have vacant units that you think would meet the program’s needs then there’s an easy way you can raise your hand to volunteer. Simply fill out this application form and send it to PEH and they will get the ball rolling. Sending in the form isn’t an absolute commitment, but it is a first step to getting the process started.
Right now we have about 75 homeless veterans in Guilford County so we need as many of you as possible to step forward and help out those people who served our country. Thank you in advance for your support.
