Housing Resource Center

Welcome to the Housing Resource Center!

Community Housing Network's Housing Resource Center is a
one-stop-shop to help people with their housing needs. Our roommate database, housing planning library, and programs such as Getting My Own Address (see Housing & Transition Planning at left) have helped thousands of people reach their goals to achieve long-term, successful housing.

The Housing Resource Center will direct you to resources at Community Housing Network and other organizations. We collaborate closely with our community partners to provide the highest level of service possible to those who need it most.

The Housing Resource Center is the designated HARA (Housing Assessment and Resource Agency) for Oakland County through the Continuum of Care and MSHDA. As the HARA, the Housing Resource Center screens those in a housing crisis for a variety of programs, addressing both short-term and long-term housing stability. This may include short-term financial assistance and housing case management for rapid rehousing and prevention, certification for special needs supportive housing units, or assistance filling out a homeless preference housing choice voucher application. Eligibility for each program differs, based on funding requirements. Staff housing specialists complete a full-intake screening for all callers, to best determine what programs a household may be eligible for, and makes appropriate referrals as applicable.

Highlights

Adopt A Family wish lists are now available!

In its 10th year, Adopt A Family will serve more than 700 people, many of them recently homeless. While these families now have a roof over their heads, many do not have money for holiday gifts or even basic items such as coats, hats and mittens.  If you, your family, organization, club or school would like to be involved, information is available here. Thank you in advance on behalf of all of our recipients.
